BRASS PRESSURE REDUCER

The Brass Pressure Reducer (BPR) will help train your embouchure to adjust to the different pitches without pressing the mouthpiece against the buzzing lips. As a result of less pressure against the lips, you will find that playing becomes easier. Your Flexibility, Endurance and Range will increase due to less pressure.

 

As the player becomes adjusted to playing with less pressure, he or she can adjust the pressure spring from..plus to minus (+ to -) gradually.

The "BPR" is a wonderful teaching devise. When used daily, the brass player will find that practicing becomes fun again, because it's less work to produce a beautiful open sound. It should be used every day, especially in your warm-ups. By using it in your warm-ups, it will set-up your playing for the day. You become more aware of using less pressure against the lips while playing. Because of the added length to the horn, the player should push their tuning slide in to compensate.

 

Teacher colleges are now using the "BPR" in their brass pedagogy classes. Brass symphony players have purchased them for their students as well as for themselves. I recently sold twenty to a music store to be resold.

The "BPR" is available for all the brass instruments and can be ordered directly by email: rgfalato@gmail.com or by telephone: 1-630-465-8543  Ask for Rick.

 

The "BPR" is available with a case for $99 each plus $8.00 for shipping in the United States and $18.00  which will also include insurance for shipping internationally.
