Warburton P.E.T.E Embouchure Trainer for Wind Players
The P.E.T.E, short for the Personal Embouchure Training Exerciser is designed, with regular use, to strengthen and support the muscles of your embouchure. A unique tool that exercise the muscles isometrically (just as you’d plank for a core muscle workout). This tool is not a replacement for practice, but it does improve and support the muscles you use when playing your instrument increasing your stamina and control.
By increasing your muscle strength, your intonation in all registers especially the upper and lower will be improved. This is the perfect little tool if you are traveling and not able to play to keep your muscles in shape and being small and discrete enough to just pop it in your pocket!
There are 2 particular ways you can use the P.E.T.E to exercise. Using the disk end and using the narrow end (both exercises are shown in the instructions included). We don’t recommend using the P.E.T.E immediately before playing as the intense work out of your muscles will fatigue your embouchure; leaving 1-2 hours before playing should be sufficient.
So, if you find that your embouchure tires before the end of your practice sessions or concerts, or perhaps you’ve taken a break from playing and want to get your chops back into shape, or maybe you feel you need help with developing your tonal support. Along with many other benefits of using what could be described as a ‘piece of metal’…you’ll just have to try it to reap the rewards!
The P.E.T.E is available in Gold Plate or Silver Plate finish.
