The difference between and ErgoPlay Tappert and Troster support is that they are built for guitar players of different sizes. I personally play the ErgoPlay Tappert Guitar Support. Sometimes seeing a picture is worth 1000 words, as they say. Hence, here is a short video showing how these two popular guitar supports are different.
Most guitar players are right-handed or play with a right-handed guitar. If you do play with a left-handed guitar, it’s much better to use the support specifically made for that instrument. There is an article with a video that you can check out here – Right-Handed vs. Left-Handed Ergoplay Guitar Supports.
If you are very short and play a smaller guitar, you may want to check out the ErgoPlay Tappert Guitar Support for Kids. This classical guitar support fits 3/4 size and smaller guitars. There is a short video at the link in the first sentence of this paragraph that has a video showing you the difference between the adult and ‘kid’ guitar support,
For years I used the A-frame guitar support. It was the best in the marketplace and helped tremendously. Without it, I used to get sore shoulders and my lower back hurt from long hours of performing. With a good classical guitar support, I no longer needed a footstool which helped my lower back plus with the guitar elevated, my shoulders no longer hurt.
The problem I found with the A-frame support is that the suction cups often popped off. The ErgoPlay is much more secure and I really like that is so adjustable.
