Buy a deOro - I am ecstatic I found something simple and cheap and far better than the Dynarette. You will appreciate having a far more stable support once you have tried it!

This is kind of funny. I did some trimming to the foam on my altered dynarette to change the natural angle of the guitar. Then I tried to play it and this small change seemed to put the guitar in a totally unnatural position. How could this little change be such a big deal? So I removed the dynarette and leaned over to grab my footstool for comparison. The footstool was easily located. It was under my left foot!! I am not kidding.

Anyway, I have decided that I am perfectly comfortable playing on a footstool and I don't really have a problem here that needs solving (I am not inclined to put anything on the outside of the guitar). So maybe I will buy a nicer footstool and be done with it.

My solution was to get a lower chair. 15 inches high seems to be just right for me. I have an Original Guitar Chair and an Adjustrite Musician's Chair by Vivo. Both are great.

It's nice to sit low enough so that your thigh is level and doesn't slope downhill.

BTW...as part of my Great Guitar Adventure, I ordered a Flanger cushion to try (I have a footstool and a strap already).

Seems well made. Fits my leg/guitar better than I anticipated and supports the guitar comfortably in a good playing position.

I just got it - haven't used it for more than 10 minutes, but so far, so good!

That little zipper compartment on the Dynaratte is good for hiding your dope. KIDDING!

I have a "Flanger" cushion too - is it a knock-off from the Far East?
It's not bad but not as high as I'd like & forces (..ahem) one's legs apart more than an Ergoplay!
It also has an annoying zip like Dynarette: annoying because it makes a noise that my microphone pics up every time I use vibrato.
This is beginning to sound a bit double-entendre ish....

Could be a knock-off, but it's well made.

I see Oasis makes one too. A knock-off of a knock-off?

If you put a piece of electrical tape over the zipper pull, it might stop the rattle.
