    From the description, it appears to be a vibrating device with a hard protruding shiny metal tip which is placed on the lips.
    I think I'd have to pass on this. It might work very well but I prefer to use my money for other things like buying the Steely Dan sheet music.

    Someone recently posted a video in German of this very device. I've seen a couple of pro's ( who will remain nameless so as to save them an incredible amount of embarrassment) trying to unload them from their arsenal. They didn't have time to use it. YAAAHH RIGHT!! Can you say GIMMICK !? :lol:

    Playing devil's advocate for a minute, the device probably could increase blood flow to the lips, and may provide some benefit. But is it more usefull than following your regular practice routine?

    The product information states that it comes with "ten different mouthpiece adapters" to fit all types of mouthpieces, including oboe and bassoon reeds. However, they show the product with a trumpet mouthpiece. I guess they know who's the most gullible. :-)
