Euphonium support system

Why the ERGObrass?

Well, the reason for using it is actually very simple and obvious. A typical euphonium weigh about 4 to 5 kilos (9 to 11 lb). Your both arms weigh about the same each and you keep both of them up with the horn at the same time!
It is like having three pieces of one and a half litre water bottles hanging from your arms when playing standing up… That is a lot of weight!  All the time when you play.
Of course, you can hold the horn and your arms in playing position that way. However, if you can avoid this, the important question is, is there really any sense keep on doing that? Would the playing be better in the long run if your arms, shoulders, neck and back could be more relaxed?

When the euphonium was first invented about 200 years ago they did not understand anything about the ergonomics back then.

Today we do understand the ergonomic challenges involved in this. Furthermore, modern horns have become a lot heavier; therefore, that old irrational tradition of holding your instrument with the everlasting static tension especially when played standing up should be questioned.

You need some time to readjust your perception about euphonium playing. You need a moment to get used to the different feeling of the nearly weightless instrument. You also need to practise how to handle the horn, empty the water etc. Everything cannot obviously be done exactly the same way as before, but the new way is not any worse, just slightly different. After the learning period, you will enjoy playing with less tension.

Only after you have learned to play with it you can say whether it is good or not. But like always, it is a lot easier to condemn something new without even trying it out!

That is why we have the 30 days money back guarantee.It is an easy and safe way to give a chance for this new and better way of playing.  Just click the Order button and get your ERGObrass, the new playing comfort will surprise you!

“I have been using the ERGObrass system in my own playing for about 3 months now. All of my previous problems with muscle fatigue and tension while holding the instrument have been eliminated. When I sit down to make music during a rehearsal, teaching session, or a recording session – I know that I can fully concentrate on making music. All of my students are now using the ERGObrass system – I am fully supportive of this product!”
