My old Dolnet is not very comfortable to play because of 2 factors.
First, the neck is not aligned with the bowl, and I feel it special to play. My Yamaha's neck is aligned with the bowl, as is my alto Selmer and my no name. But I think I can't do anything about it but to adapt myself.

Second, and I guess it is the main factor for me, the left thumb rest.
I try to put pictures of it, hope it will do.

The thumb rest is a convex plastic stuff. Is it the same on yours ? I bought it used.
Any of you has the same kind of thumb rest ?
Any idea how to upgrade it ?
I just cut apart the plastic running over the metal and it seems better. I will smooth it.
Ideally I would like to upgrade it to maximum comfort.
Any idea ?
