SST Thumb Hooks are used by many professional saxophone players like David Liebman, Ernie Watts, Courtney Pine, Jerry Bergonzi and many others. SST Thumb Hooks change the sound and response of all
saxophone makes and types from soprano to baritone. The changes are significant.
Here, some important References
DAVID LIEBMAN wrote:
Tino has for years been experimenting with the effect of thumb rests on the sound and to be honest there IS a difference using his hooks. You have to try it because it wouldn’t seem on
paper to make a difference but it definitely helps the sound."
ERNIE WATTS wrote: I never would have thought that something so small would make such a big difference. It is great. You are a very talented inventor Tino.
PAUL HELLER, WDR BIG BAND wrote: SST Daumenhaken sind wirklich unglaublich. Ich habe mir nicht vorstellen können, dass sie einen so großen Effekt auf den Sound meiner Saxophone haben können! Ein absoluter Zugewinn, den ich auf keinen Fall mehr missen möchte!
COURTNEY PINE wrote: "I have been using Tino
Schucht's fantastic Super Magic Thumb Rest on my soprano saxophone and it has really ENHANCED the tone and response of the horn in a positive way. I don't know why it works and I don't care,
all I know is that when I play the horn now I feel inspired to play longer all because of a thumb rest? Yes I know it sounds strange but until you try it you won't know and if you love to play the saxophone you will want to know". Professor Courtney Pine C.B.E
