HARVEY PITTEL: "Over the past several years, I have worked to create something that would enable EVERY saxophonist, clarinetist, oboist and English horn player to attach a piece of hardware easily to their OWN instrument, freeing the right hand and thumb. The two versions of the "Pittel Hand Eze™"--the "Hand Eze" for saxophones as well as the iteration for clarinet, oboe and English horn--remove the weight from the hand and thumb.
The "Pittel Hand Eze™" attaches to the body of each instrument by replacing its original thumb rest and adjusts easily both horizontally and vertically. It may be attached to the clarinet, oboe and English horn using either the instrument's existing thumb-rest screws or those included with the "Hand Eze". We have also included a double sided easily removable adhesive. For saxophones, the "Hand Eze" attaches with the instrument's existing thumb rest screw and plate."
