ERGObrass for trumpet. It is a new auxiliary device for all trumpet, cornet and flugel horn players which gives the player a more comfortable, effective and healthy way of playing the instrument.

The general idea of ERGObrass supports is based on a simple fact that all brass instruments are heavy to hold. We all know that relaxation is very important in brass playing. However, holding the instrument in playing position inevitably produces a static tension in hands, arms, shoulders, upper body and throat.

Most players can play with this tension, of course - but the tension is always there disturbing the performance.

By using an ERGObrass support every brass player can stay totally relaxed while playing. The support rod will take all the weight away from the players hands and arms and transmit it to the chair or through a special belt pocket to the legs of the player. And in addition to the better efficiency, it is also very comfortable!

Most makes of cornet and Flugel horn can be played with the ERGObrass trumpet support.

The cornet plate is slightly longer than the regular trumpet plate and must be placed vertically, not horizontally.

The trombone, for most of its 500 years, was a small and light instrument. Only in recent history has it grown step by step in to its present size and shape. Today trombone is a much more versatile instrument than its predecessor. However, as the trombone changed, it also became a heavier instrument.

Today, we also pay much more attention to how the tools and equipment we use every day affect our health. This is the science of ergonomics. The trombone, while a marvelous instrument, does pose special ergonomic challenges because of its size and weight.

Over the years, if the trombone is held with a statically tense hand, many players suffer various consequences.

First the hand gets tired and stiff. Later one often acquires many kinds of pains in the wrist, arm, elbow, upper arm and shoulder or in the upper back and neck. This can reduce the effectiveness and enjoyment of playing the trombone. It does not have to be like this.

The ERGObone trombone support is specially designed to be a handy medium to enable the player to keep his or her hands and upper body completely relaxed by removing the need for the body to support the weight of the trombone. Instead, the ERGObone support will transmit the weight of the horn to the chair, or to the harness the player may wear.

Freeing up the upper body can also help the most important aspects of brass playing: breathing and airflow. With ERGObone, the only task remaining for the left hand is to hold the mouthpiece in the right place and angle for each situation. With the weight of the horn taken off of the body, the player's touch and feel for playing are improved and stresses are reduced.

The ERGObone trombone support can be used while sitting or standing. A plastic fastener is attached near the centre of gravity of the trombone and it joins either in a monopod tube standing on the chair, or in a plastic counterpart hanging in a comfortable harness - similar to other wind instrument harnesses. The chair tube is designed to be used while seated, and the harness can be used in both the seated and standing positions. It is an individual matter as to which position is preferred. One can of course use both harness and chair tube and exchange from one to the other easily and quickly when needed.

The ERGObrass is an auxiliary device for all horn players which gives the player a more comfortable, effective and healthy way of playing the French horn.

The French Horn, while a marvelous instrument, does pose special ergonomic challenges because of its size and weight. The bigger the horn (especially a triple horn), or the smaller the player (especially a young player), the more important ergonomic considerations become. Over the years if the horn is held with statically tensed hands, many players suffer various consequences. First the hand and arm gets tired and stiff, later one often acquires many kinds of pains in the wrist, arm, elbow, upper arm and shoulder or in the upper back and neck.

The ERGObrass support is specially designed to be a handy medium to enable the player to keep his or her hands and upper body completely relaxed by removing the need for the body to support the weight of the instrument. Instead, the ERGObrass support will transmit the weight of the horn to the chair or through the belt to the legs.

Freeing up the upper body can also help the most important aspects of brass playing: breathing and air flow. With the ERGObrass, the only task remaining for the left hand is to balance the horn and keep the mouthpiece in the right place and angle for each situation. Then, of course, your fingers can act relaxed on valve triggers. With the weight of the horn taken off of the body, the player's touch and feel for playing are improved and stresses are reduced.
