"Just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the new "Buzzard" that you make.
I had been using the similar device you had been selling, but I can't go back to it now that I've used your "Buzzard". The "Buzzard" is actually easier to hold onto, and that alone helps find the optimum, usual mouthpiece placement. Plus, whatever you did to the air-flow makes going back to the actual horn real natural. If I'm driving to a gig and using the "Buzzard" in the car, I get to the gig with confidence that I haven't done anything harmful to my chops.
When I'm busy composing or arranging, I can often miss getting time on my trombone. But now, I can use the "Buzzard" and my mouthpiece to at least stay in good playing shape through doing my little 5-10 minute routine that works for me a couple of times a day. Again.... I can sleep at night knowing that my chops are in shape for tomorrow nights' gig!
I've been using the P.E.T.E. for about a year know, and that's been super-great. I made a switch back to a larger diameter rim after a number of years on something smaller, and the P.E.T.E. has helped to re-train my embouchure and 'make all normal' again.
Thanks for the great products....... I'll have to try one of your mouthpieces sometime!"
Hi Terry, just a quick note that I really love the trombone BUZZARD my brother got for me. I buzz a lot, driving to gigs, warming up, just walking around. A big plus is that in some clubs you have no place to warm up as you would disturb the people, so now I can warm up with the BUZZARD with the same air resistance as my horn so Im ready to play with out overblowing the horn. I also use it daily as a warm up tool when practicing. Anyway great invention, and I will tell others about it too.
