More appearance than being
Karin5451, 27.02.2018
The approach coach looks reasonably pretty. However stuck - as already written in another review - even in my copy of wood remains from drilling the hole. In this respect, the processing is only moderate for this high price.
Different mouthpieces always wiggle slightly when plugged in - the mouthpieces are probably not. If you press the mouthpieces a little hard, they do not wobble like that anymore.
In the attached short description is actually "do not drip". Well, how is that supposed to work? Does not work either. Of course, it drips or if you hold the open hole up, then it splashes out sometime funny up.
The knurled screw wobbles constantly in its thread - even if it is completely screwed.
So far I had used a short piece of an old garden hose for training and partially closed the end with a finger. That did not work much worse, moistened me and was, above all, much less expensive.
This approach coach unfortunately did not convince me. I will continue to practice with it and if necessary, revise my rating later. After the current status, I would not buy it again.

My experience with the approach coach
30.10.2016
The approach coach is a helpful tool to improve the approach and, above all, to maintain the current state of development. I have had very good experiences with him and would buy him again at any time.
The approach coach is actually a small "torture tool". Weaknesses are even more pronounced by him than without him, if only on the mouthpiece or on the instrument is played
This I feel as an advantage. So you can work better on your problems. With the screw on the wooden housing, the tone response can be further complicated. But you should be careful at the beginning. Then everything becomes even harder. The danger of "blowing" then exists here quite definitely. I often use it before the actual practice. Sometimes also as a warm-up aid. After a short time, however, progress is made. If you take it away and instead use the instrument, you experience a great feeling. One thinks, the instrument has changed completely to the positive.
I use the approach coach mainly for buzzing exercises with etudes from the "Buzzing Book" by James Thompson. I have problems playing a clean buzzing sound g1 and lower notes on the mouthpiece to play clean. This is due to poor sound quality and response to these notes on the trumpet. Here the approach coach has already helped me a lot. In addition, the approach also gains more stamina.
Another advantage is that practicing with it is very quiet. You can also use it in a multi-family house or hotel very well.
A point of criticism, however, is the lack of care instructions on the part of the manufacturer. Here the manufacturer should improve. I clean the device after practicing with a mouthpiece brush and from time to time with clarinet oil. I believe this is necessary to avoid unpleasant odors.
As I said: a great device. However, its positive effect presupposes almost regular practice.
