    Has anyone used this system, or using it now to any extent?

    I like what i'm hearing about the learning benefits. Plus, to use it to support the weight of the horn? I've got bad rotator-cuffs that'd never heal up trying to hold a trumpet for any length of time.

    Dear nontrumpet player godchaser,

    We have delt with the Shulman System on previous threads. Use your internet search skills and research librarian skills to find it.

    If you have bad rotator cuffs by a pocket trumpet or cornet. Oh, I forgot, you want something that is not obtainable, a trumpet without weight but plays like a Monette.

    You could have just answered his questions. Whether or not you believe he plays trumpet, or is a real person has nothing to do with this topic.
    Stop being a troll.

    Anyways. I have seen it used. I don't see why it wouldn't help you out if you have bad shoulders. I don't get how it woul dhave any learning benefits though.

    You alright stchasking-



    Posting again here:

    I searched Shulman System there- i didn't find anything. Possibly there's a thread though.

    Good to hear Brekelefuw; i was wondering how practical it may be.

    I use it daily and, if you find the right positioning of its arms and neckstrap, it helps to releave fatigue on shoulders, breath properly, reduce unnecessary embouchure movements...

    At least this is my experience...

    There feels like a lot of baggage in this thread, so I'll keep to the facts. Matt Shulman's system is quite useful. It is very easy to develop poor posture/horn positions over time - especially for those of us who have back, neck, or shoulder problems. For me, periodic use of the Shulman systems helps insure that I'm maintaining a good alignment and posture and not catering too much to my sore back.
    It seems fairly expensive for a little wooden device, but when comparted to the price of many mouthpieces, it doesn't seem so bad.

    The Shulman System is not currently available. I e-mailed Matt about that and here is his reply;

    we're out of stock but the company is for sale, that's
    the status... so within the next several months somome
    will likely purchase the company and start offering
    the system again.


    So here's hoping that Matt can find another manufacturer and start offering the system again.

    Check Hickey's Music Store out of Ithaca, NY. I was browsing their site one time while looking for Strads in my area and came across this Shlman System you're inquiring about. Their site was down last I checked, but you could always call. If they did have it, I doubt they've sold it, so check it out.
