Stratos Encore Pro is a precisely adjustable attachment for all brass instruments. Designed to reduce mouthpiece pressure and optimise your jaw position and so improve your embouchure. Engineered to last a lifetimes playing, it is hand crafted entirely in the UK using high quality Aviation Grade polished aluminium.
How It Works
This high-quality embouchure system is simply attached to your instrument or existing mouthpiece whilst you play or practise. STRATOS Encore Pro reduces mouthpiece pressure and ensures a good jaw position taking away the need to “think” about position and pressure. Practising with STRATOS Encore Pro re-educates your muscles and nerves and allows you to adopt your improved embouchure position naturally, even after you remove it from your instrument. This allows you to concentrate on other aspects of your playing, and you can relax back into better and better performances. STRATOS Encore Pro has been shown to help solve many embouchure problems. It also gives improvements in power, range, tone, and stamina allowing you to play with more ease and greater flexibility.
Power without pressure
Heavy mouthpiece pressure stop your lips vibrating properly and restricts the flow of blood to the them, so they tire more quickly, reducing your power and volume. Excessive pressure over a long period of time may actually damage your lips and muscles. By using STRATOS Encore Pro its adjustable spring-loaded chin-rest removes excess pressure from the lips, allowing them to vibrate more freely, and restores the blood supply to them. You will be able to play with more power and for longer.
Tone without tension
Regular use of STRATOS Encore Pro encourages you to develop your optimum playing position with reduced mouthpiece pressure. This helps you generate a good fundamental tone that can be delivered consistently across the entire range of the instrument. No more struggling with a weak or “thin” tone even when exploring the limits of your instrument.
