ERGObrass Trumpet Support

FAQ

- and hints and tips

Is it awkward?
It is quite natural that a player, who has been playing for years, will go through an experiment and adjustment period when first using the ERGObrass support. Most of players have developed some tiny little movements during playing, the player does not need them anywhere, in fact he or she does not even know about most of them. But it is only a matter of some days or weeks, and a player will get used to ERGObrass and finds a new way to make his or hers typical movements, only now ERGObrass will be supporting the weight of the instrument. Now you can discover new and healthier ways of playing. You’ll find out very soon that you can turn and lean your horn with minimal effort. In fact the only real difference is that you feel more relaxed and playing is lighter and more comfortable.
Does it fit any horn?

Practically yes in any normal shaped trumpet with piston valves. For cornet, Flugel horn and German trumpet with rotary valves it is needed to have a special attaching plate. If your dealer does not have them, you can get it from us directly.

Will it fit in the horn case?

As there is only the little plate attached permanently to the horn, it shall fit easliy in most horn cases. The support rod and tube are approx. 36 cm long and easy transport.

How is the height adjusted?

It is most important that the instrument is at the right height - where you find it comfortable - when you play. You lift or descend the support rod into its counterpart. Just open the screw and set it in a desireble height. And as the horn is on a top of the spring, you can also smoothly and with a minimum force move it up and down a little bit while you play.

What does it look like?

The ERGObrass is designed to be as invisible as possible, it is simple and non-obtrusive.
