Floam: A simple idea often thought perhaps, but never realized--until now. Nearly weightless foam beads in a non-hardening matrix which is completely "squishable" to the player's desired shape and firmness. Floam remains malleable indefinitely with amazing potential for mild to wild adjustment situations. Beginner, Educator, or Performer- YOUR BEST SETUP because it practically adjusts itself. Floam and modular SureToneRest components are compatible with other product brands and styles too: KUN, BRAVO, ARTISTA, WOLFE,MENHUIN,RESONANZ, ETC.
