Solexa Thumbport - Piccolo
The Thumbport clamps onto the piccolo and guides the right thumb to be more functional in keeping the instrument stable. You will find new freedom in finger movement and stability in sound production. You will never play the same without the Thumbport.
The Thumbport aids in balancing your instrument, which is comprised of a C-shaped shell and an extension from one end of the openings. This thumb-like extension is toward the player when the C-shell is clamped onto the piccolo. The Thumbport guides the player's right thumb at an efficient location and provides additional support.
Because nine of our fingers are used to operate keys on a piccolo, only one, the right thumb, is left to decisively balance it. Many piccoloist knowingly or unknowingly use their right little finger to help. It reduces the agility of not only the little finger but also the rest of the right hand. The Thumbport snaps on around the F key. It guides one's right thumb to support the instrument at an angle. This force can be seen as the sum of two separate branches: one supports the piccolo from below and the other counters the horizontal rotation. The extension arm rests on the thumb gently, which easily prevents rolling.
