    Ergobrass - anyone use one?

    Thank you all for your advice. I have been using the Ergobrass pogo stick for about 4 weeks which included a week of intensive rehearsal and playing and it has made a huge difference to my recovery. It does take a little bit of getting used to, but not much and depending on the surface of the...

    Ergobrass - anyone use one?

    Thank you all - I decided to go for the Ergobrass and it works really well. Helen - your tips are absolutely right! I have also found that though it has meant I can play a whole rehearsal without being in a lot of pain, I obviously do quite a lot of 'pulling in' to the mouthpiece with the whole...
