    Recently ran into this Brio breathing tool in an add online. My initial response is skepticism, but I wanted to check and see if anyone had heard more about it than me, or what any others feel about it.

    It was invented in Japan. I believe the way it works is that it trains your embouchure to remain steady while increasing air pressure, but I'm not exactly sure how they accomplish that, or exactly how that would be useful (in the context of using the Brio)

    This is the English home page: Brio š For your correct embouchure š Training with breath and tonguing š high notes š
    And a youtube video: Trumpet High notes Brio - YouTube

    I guess that someone is just going to have to go out and buy one of these things.

    Seing as how Arbans, Clarke and Irons has been good enough for my students (for all of the claims made here), I probably won't be involved in the experiment.

    Another device to relieve the gullible of $55.

    That kinda makes sense...but I wont spend $55 to try it out. Kind of like that chopsaver lip balm. Its chapstick that does what every other chapstick does, nothing else.

    I use Chopsaver. It isn't chapstick (at least not the hard as a candle chapstick of my youth). I don't mind the extravagance of it's cost. The one thing that will help instead of this "tool" is to just play the horn.
