I bought this for my maple wood Moek recorder. It is not pretty but it works. It does not appear to have marked the wood. It would be good if EMS offered a choice of colours to match the wood colours better.
The thumb rest fits well for the Moek Rottenburgh alto. It does not have sharp edges that could damage my flute.
Why are there not better thumb rests available? This is probably the best clip-on rest but you need to hold it in place with a blob of plasti-tack. Also, these rests don't last forever -- the clips break after a while. I suggest therefore that if you can't play without a rest, you buy a few extra as spares. In short, this is a cheap and viable solution to the thumb rest problem but not a perfect one.
This was to replace on.e I had broken and it works perfectly
A must for every beginner! (although I try not to be hooked on using it forever...just for the little extra bit of safety)
