The WindGauge Breathing Trainer - Great Value
Improve your air efficiency with the Triflo II WindGauge. The WindGauge improves your movement of air during inhalation and exhalation. Learning to increase and control airflow is beneficial for many reasons. The Triflo II WindGauge measures your inhalation at different pressure points using the three different balls as guides of air pressure and airflow.
You will feel the difference in your breathing immediately and your sound and playing efficiency will be greatly improved.
Performance anxiety or nervousness is a common problem not only due to lack of preparation but a change in breathing patterns. Awareness of your breathing function will allow you to notice when your mental tension increases, increasing your heart rate and restricting your breathing. Confidence comes from great preparation and the ability to calm the body by breathing fully in a relaxed manner.
* Turn the unit upside down and use it with your mouthpiece to determine your airflow thickness. Most embouchure problems are actually only air problems. Blowing a thin stream of air starves the embouchure of the required airflow to function correctly. The balls will move to the top of the unit when the correct airflow is blown.
This unit fits all brass mouthpieces.
