abunda_amazon_reviews I've been a working guitarist for 40 years, and probably as a result, my lumbar spine has been a wreck for most of that time. Footstools are generally the way to go, but most lap-based supports simply don't work. The triangular contraptions are flimsy and badly angled,and the bean-bag cushions feel like a big wet sponge on your leg. The ErgoPlay Tappert is the best design I've seen. The part that contacts the left thigh is rubberized in a super-smooth finish and stays put no matter what you're wearing. It's not 100% perfect, which is why I've rated it 4 stars here, but would have ranked a 5 if I could adjust the upper bout at a better tilt. I have a short torso and long legs for a gal, so I set the adjustable screw at nearly the lowest height. The only feature that isn't perfect is the way the body of the guitar lines up with your torso. I would have preferred a slight tilt upward, but it's still pretty good, though admittedly, I can't see the fingerboard as well as I'd like. A few reviewers complained that the suction cups don't adhere well to the guitar. I've tried it on two of mine - one is matte french polish and the other is glossy nitrocellulose lacquer. It's equally stable on both, and makes no marks on the guitar. Granted, the player's upper body weight helps the adhesion, but if you just stand it up for an hour and not playing it, sure, it does fall off. But that's a non-issue. Is this worth $55? Yes, absolutely. German design and construction makes for a much more stable product. It's especially worth it if you had planned to play a less expensive product in the $20-$30 RANGE. I've been using it for a few days now and may update this review in a few weeks. This has potential to upgrade to 5 stars. Thank you, Amazon!;;Reviewed in the United States on May 16, 2018;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Saving my back!;;ileensixstring;;;I had been using an Efel Guitar rest which is a very lightweight and compact support. If you have any back issues, the standard way of propping up your left foot on a small stool can lead to lower back pain. These supports (cushions, brackets, or clamps with legs) let you keep your feet flat on the floor and put less strain on your lumbar region. I was happy with the Efel support but it only had one suction cup. My instructor remarked "That thing will pop off during a concert and you WON'T be happy. Get something with more than one suction cup for safety." And I did notice that as the cup aged a bit, it started popping off during practice. It's easy enough to slap back on--but you wouldn't want that during performance when anything can go wrong and it will, So the ErgoPlay is the same idea; an angled support that rests on your leg and raises the guitar to the correct angle for play. Unlike the Efel, it has three suction cups. One goes on the lower bout and the two on the upper bout. There is a sliding adjustment on the vertical leg that allows you to change the angle by unscrewing a large wing nut and fitting it to the way you want to hold the guitar. Unlike the Efel, you can twist this to have it at a bit of an angle from your body (you are supposed to have the guitar nearly flat to your torso but some of us angle a bit to see the fretboard.) The ErgoPlay is made of metal and has a rubber padding on the leg support. The Efel is made of something like ABS plastic or Delrin and has no adjustments. On both of these supports, you can replace the suction cups when they get worn. The ErgoPlay has included membranes to cover the cups to get better stick on non-glossy finishes. The downsides to the ErgoPlay: one, the size: it's larger and heavier than the Efel. I was able to tuck the Efel into the front pocket of my guitar case (in the music pocket) or even squeeze it into the compartment beneath the neck. Not so with the ErgoPlay. It's not bulky, but it won't fit easily into a guitar case: you'll probably need to carry a tote with accessories and music (which nearly everyone does anyway.) Two: the bracket that adjusts up or down to adjust the height--I tried it and use it at the lowest level. Another member of our guitar society tried it and said the same thing. (He is shorter than me--but I sit low even though I am tall.) Both of us felt it was long enough and who would ever use it at the extended setting? It could even have been at a lower angle than it allows. Summary: adjustable support, three suctions cups. A good alternative to the small Efel and more portable and afforable than larger supports like the cushions or the Murata, which is a large clamp for the bout and a leg with a thigh support plate.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 29, 2017;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Adjustable support with three suction cups;;Joanna D.;;;I think I've tried just about every accessory out there for raising a guitar to a proper and comfortable playing position, and this one so far is the clear winner.
