A friend of mine saw the thumbrest on a video on youtube and he's a newbie with his bass...

Havent tried ever a thumbrest so i didnt know what i should suggest him...

Any thoughts? To me it sounds like the extra wheels on your first bicycles...

Keeps you from playing properly on a bass without thumbrest, I'd say. Razz

So would you suggest it for every bassist or you believe that you need to play with a certain way (I usually rest my thumb on the pick and wont move it from there) or in general?

I'd say it's more a matter of personal preference. I've only played one bass with a thumb rest and I didn't use it because it wasn't suited to my playing style.

to be fair when i've used basses with them I fail to see what they are doing for me. But some people must use them if they keep being produced!
