This is a beautiful brass rim designed from a Tuba mouthpiece. Perfect for buzzing exercises. Many Tuba players are only familiar with mouthpiece buzzing and lip buzzing, but NOW you can add a very productive exercise to your practicing routine: RIM BUZZING! (30 minute tutorial included)
Personally, I first started messing around with rim buzzing after seeing Lynn Nicholson do it on many videos.
I decided to give it a try.
18 months later now at the end of May 2019, the verdict is in:
1. ENHANCES TONE CENTER
2. IMPROVES RESPONSE
3. HELPS PREVIOUS HIGH SQUEAKS TURN INTO REAL NOTES
4. IMPROVES LIP FLEXIBILITY
5. HELPS OPEN UP YOUR SOUND - BIGGER SOUND
Well, there are only 2 or 3 places to get a rim.
Lynn Nicholson wants close to $175 for his xpiece which comes with the rim.
Bob Reeves will cut off your rim on your existing mouthpiece for $155. That is actually how I got started, but not because I wanted a rim to buzz. My mouthpiece is a hybrid so he had to cut my old mouthpiece to make it work.
A few random mouthpiece makers will also do it for $125 and up.
If you ask me...kinda steep.
So, I developed the Sizzle*Rim.
I also have hooked up with a manufacturer here in Texas and we are about to try cutting rims for: TUBA, FRENCH HORN, TROMBONE so stay tuned and tell your low brass friends.
Based on the facts and the data presented above, I am pricing the Sizzle*Rim to be extremely affordable and provide a good result from your practicing with it.
$89 + $7 Priority Shipping = $96
The shipping of $7 is INCLUDED in the total price.
I don't pull people's chains on shipping. The shipping is almost EXACTLY what it really is! Please keep in mind if the USPS makes priority shipping more expensive then of course I will pass that on to you. For right now, it appears to send this in a small, flat rate box to anywhere in the U.S.A. it is $7.
This includes a digital download tutorial. We do not offer returns on digital downloads.
Please note there are no refunds on anything you put in your mouth! If you purchased a device or practice aid that is intended to be put in, on, or around your mouthpiece, it cannot be returned. Even if you say you never put it in your mouthpiece, we have no way to verify this and cannot resell it to another customer.
Would you want to buy our practice aids and devices knowing we took returns on them? Yeah, didn't think so!
