Useful, in small doses

The P.E.T.E. is a handy little tool, designed to strengthen the muscles of the embouchure. There are two exercises that the item is designed for, but no doubt others will be developed.

The item itself is very well manufactured; the silver plate is flawless, and it's very comfortable to use. It's also very easy to overdo the exercises, and Warburton do make this point themselves on their instructional videos. A little definitely goes a long way with this product.

I find this to be a very valuable tool for keeping the muscles of the embouchure strong when I have an enforced absence from the horn, such as on long business trips. However, it's not a substitute for practice, and I prefer not to use it as a supplement to practice either, as it's so easy to overdo. This is user error, however, and not a design flaw.

Warburton's PETE
JoanL 02.08.2014
Excellent servcie from Thomann's as usual. Very quick despatch and packaging. I would certainly recommend them with hesitation. The PETE itself hasn't really worked for me. I find there is not enough guidance on its use so I think when I started to use it I maybe overdid it. Some exercises progressive use to build the embouchure would have been most helpful. I have returned to playing my cornet after 30 years and am now on the wrong side of 60 so my embouchure muscles are not great. I was a bit disappointed to be honest as the PETE received such rave reviews. Maybe the sensible thing would be to contact Warburton's for advice.

I'm in love!

This is a great product! Before i bought it I was a bit sceptical, but I decided to try it out and send it back if I wouldn't like it. WOW! I will never send it back! As a trombone player I cannot always practice where or when I want to, but with my P.E.T.E. I can at least keep my chops fresh if I can't practise sometime.
I always keep it in my pocket, and since it doesn't make any sound and is quite discrete, I can use it almost whereever I want.
It's also so small that you can always bring it with you without any problems.

Great trainer assistant
john86 27.04.2020
I use this as an assistant tool to train the muscles regarding my embouchure. It's ideal for when you can't practise with the real instrument or when it's night time etc. When I'm siitting at the pc or writing something I can just train train with this easily. You shouldn't get used to it though.

Product itself is made from high quality material. The surface is quite smooth and easy to clean.
