A.P.E. - Anti-Pressure Exerciser

The Warburton A.P.E. helps you learn how to maintain a high-quality full-range buzz without applying excessive pressure.

Trumpet players know this story all too well.... To get those screaming high notes, there is a natural tendency to push the mouthpiece HARD against the chops. Often times too hard - to the point where you regret it later. Players know that more mouthpiece pressure can help to support weak or tired chops in order to continue playing. The downside is that too much pressure against the lips prevents proper blood flow, and you wear out even faster - and finally it's game over until you've had plenty of time to rest.

Just plug your mouthpiece into the Warburton A.P.E. and start buzzing in the lower range. Then increase the pitch of your buzz as if playing a scale.

Two versions available:  The silver plated and plastic versions are functionally identical.

Key Benefits:

  • By learning how to reduce mouthpiece pressure against the lips you will gain endurance.
  • Sound quality will improve because you're also learning how to maintain the best quality buzz.
  • Without the trumpet "in the way", you can focus strictly on learning what mouthpiece angle and embouchure/aperture/lip set works best for you - just by listening to the quality of the buzz.
Currently, A.P.E. is available for Trumpet players. Other sizes for the French Horn, Cornet, Trombone, and Tuba are in development and should be available for purchase sometime during the 2nd quarter of 2011 (maybe even sooner depending on how we can work them into the production schedule).
