NOTE: Suction cups do not work well on non-gloss finishes. If your finish is not smooth and shiny, we highly recommend Sagework Magnetic Guitar Supports. ErgoPlay includes adhesive films with this support that will allow suction cups to adhere more securely, but these films can cause serious damage to your guitar finish.
The ErgoPlay Tappert is easily adjustable to fit you and your guitar. The height and angle of the arms can be adjusted and as an improvement on the Professional Model it features adjustable suction cup angles along the plane of the support to help conform to the guitar body. Tabs on the suction cups allow easy removal to prevent damage to the guitar finish.
The Tappert is an improvement to the Professional model by adding the ability to adjust the angle of the suction cups to match the curve of the guitar body. This helps keep the support firmly attached to the guitar. The Tappert requires less width to fit on the guitar and also has a higher maximum position than the professional.
Minimum guitar body depth required: 3.5 inches.
Includes two ErgoPlay Suction Cup Helpers.

I have several guitar supports; none worked well for me until I got the Ergoplay Tappert! It is my understanding that if you are not tall (i.e. 5'5 or taller, the other supports may not be adjustable so that the head of the guitar is not overly high.
I am now able to sit comfortably in my chair without a footstool and can play for a long time without discomfort to my back and I have perfect visualization of the fretboard! How nice is that! It is great! So happy about my discovery!
The brace provides stability and comfort. As a senior player—I’m 71—the brace has relieved the discomfort of extended playing by eliminating the raised foot, allowing the hips to remain level. The brace also helps with holding an upright posture, thereby alleviating back discomfort. The brace is solidly constructed with quality materials; the design permits easy adjustment, for height and cant, to fit your preferred position. I’m very satisfied with the brace and glad to have it.
Does exactly what I hoped it would do, which is to support the guitar without relying on a foot rest to hike the knee into position. Much easier to relax and focus on finger position and playing. Not too bulky. The suction cups do not seem to harm or mar the finish. XGuitars was super prompt on delivery also.
I have always used a footrest, but I decided to try the Ergoplay Support. I have seen a difference in my posture with no more slouching after an hour into my practice. It has put the neck of the guitar at a higher and proper angle, although this took a couple of days to get use to as I could not see the frets as easily, but it has improved my playing. It is made well with the ability to adjust higher, lower, tilt forward or backward, but the only complaint is that I wish the suction cups adhered a little better. The cups work better some days than others because I believe the humidity level changes in the house.
First time ordering from XGuitars and was very happy. Geoff returned my call promptly and answered all my questions. Super-fast shipping as well. I love supporting our US small businesses.
Christmas present for my daughter, so it hasn’t been used. Communication with xguitars was excellent & prompt shipping. Highly recommend and would not hesitate to purchase again.
