Hi Jorge,

The main reason I ordered one is because I think the angle on my right hand was suffering due to Dynarette not able to provide a higher position. And anything that Peter uses I will follow : )

Received today my de Oro guitar support and applied it to one of my guitars. The adjustment to my preferred playing position is easy enough (one just have to look at the pictures in the card that comes with it). It has one immediate advantage when compared to the ErgoPlay Troster, it doesn't slip down my trousers... :)

Greetings. I'm new to the forum and immediately gravitated toward this thread. The first time I found this forum was when I went looking for opinions on guitar supports and there are many! I have to preface any comments by saying that I'm a beginner, but a zealous one. I practice a lot right now, and I can feel the effects of it on hips and back when I get up. It was causing me some asymmetric strains that I started to notice while at work, standing up, and I do tend to get some low back discomfort if I'm not mindful of my posture, so I decided to experiment with supports.

I tried a number of supports including the cushion and often felt like they moved the guitar away from the spot I expected to hold it, maybe not much but I noticed. If I had gone with the cushion, I would have ended up modifying it.

I ended up liking the Tenuto rest, which is a kickstand type like Gitano and others. I do have a very level guitar seat, which is a keyboard bench and I agree that level thighs help a lot. I've played on other seats and had to readjust for thigh slide.

I have this idea for throwing a rare earth magnet in my pocket and pinning another onto the guitar support strap material where it sits on my thigh to see if that gives it enough *stick* to fix it in place. This is one of the modifications I would have considered for the cushion as well. However, with a level seating posture it's not a priority.

I do think the support has allowed me to go for much longer practice sessions without a tendency to have one-sided back and hip stiffness.

The soreness is now much more uniform and symmetric! ;)

I have the dynarette, ergoplay, gitano and a footstool. I can't use the footstool for too long without getting pain in my lower back. I tried the ergoplay for awhile, but the suction cups don't stick to guitars with French polish. Thus I settled on the dynarette. I do wish it allowed me to hold the guitar at a bit more of an angle, but I've gotten used to it. I put a piece of sticky material you use at the bottom of kitchen drawers underneath and it stays in place.

I got a Dynarette. Only the smaller size was available in Helsinki, so that's the one i picked. I had read some suggestions about using the smaller Dynarette with a footstool adjusted to the smallest height possible. I did this and I'm quite happy with the result. I've noticed that Dynarette works better with some trousers, while with some others it may be a bit slippery or hard to set to the best possile position. As I now use the footstool with minimum height, I no longer seem to have back problems.
