The Fingerport is a left hand support that allows greater balance and comfort in holding the flute. It is comprised of a C-shaped shell and a thumb-like extension. The Fingerport helps the player to place the index finger at an efficient spot and provides additional support. It is reversible so that it can be used on flutes with a C# trill key. In the rare case that it interferes with the flute's mechanism, the Fingerport can be cut for a customized fit.
