Topic: Bassoon floor pegs.
Ladies and Gentlemen:
When playing with a seat strap, I get nasty stress in my left hand, and I've found that I'm -mostly- comfortable playing with a neck strap, so that's what I usually stick with, despite the time that sometimes that's a little agonizing on my shoulders.
Last year, one of the folk over in the classifieds was selling bassoon floor pegs, and I went ahead and purchased the one he was selling, figuring I'd give that a try to see how it felt ergonomically. I figured, eh, it's used, if I don't like it, I can always sell it and I shouldn't lose too much cash, how much can it hurt, ooh, a new gadget, yay.
Fast forward a year and a bit of change.. and I'm only now getting around to trying to figure out how I'd position myself to play with such a contrivance. Can anyone give any advice on properly situating the bassoon using a floor peg, and calibrating the way it should be aligned?
Inquiring minds want to know!
