Ishimori Wood Stone "Vintage" Thumb Rest
The Wood Stone Original Hard Rubber Thumb Rest is modelled after the hard rubber thumb rests used on early Mark VI saxophones produced between 1954 and 1960. The thumb rests are said to have been contributed to dark and rich sound of that time.
ISHIMORI Wind Instruments tried to restore them and finally succeeded in producing the great thumb rests as The Wood Stone Hard Rubber Thumb Rest "Vintage Style". It features warmer sound with beautiful resonance. Please try and experience the legendary sound of old Mark VI saxophones.
