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.
This is a smaller version of the ErgoPlay Tappert specifically designed for the young guitar player. The Tappert kids support has a subtle metallic blue tint.
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.
It's important to start with good posture and the ErgoPlay Kids supports will help your child begin the right way.
Includes two ErgoPlay Suction Cup Helpers.

This support is very adjustable. The suction cups have quite a range of available positions, and the height adjustment bracket can also be angled inwards to suit the player. I use a wheelchair and was having trouble getting anywhere near to a decent posture. Via some twinges in my right arm, I realized that I was using it to hold the body of the guitar in while playing. This support has alleviated that issue. I noticed the very first evening after practicing that my upper right arm was not 'complaining' like usual. I'm quite pleased with this purchase.
Well made, sufficiently adjustable, and more than adequate size-wise for most adults in my opinion. Eg, I'm 5' 9", 160 lbs. Any larger would be excessive!
Fits perfect and stays attached.
