There's one born every minute. Bet they won't send one to us to test, we've got excellent snake oil detectors.

They should have given it an old American makers name , it`s the most authentic Conn I`ve seen - LOL ..

the best way to Age your horn is to leave it in the attic in a dusty suitcase , let the pads go mouldy and invent a myth about being made during the best part of the century (Pre-WW2 is most common) when the best ones were made before the Mexicans invaded ...... also make sure the serial number has 5 digits

To be clear: I don't rule out that the idea behind it can have sone fundaments (whatever Benade says) but the actuation leaves me skeptical. Have you watched the animated video?

It does mean we can have yet another thread where we can debate the pros/cons,so now we have a yearly ligature thread,a sax body finish thread and now a timbre trainer thread,anyway my saxes are like my dog: Untrainable.

Try throwing a much, much bigger stick.
It's called "timber trainer"

I need to try that,how much is the Timbre trainer,although i could throw it but would still end up having to fetch it myself.

so.... how much is this to buy - does it work on flute!
If it's less than 50p then maybe worth a punt!

So you put this in and the vibrations improve performance and get it warmed up ready for use.
Would anyone like to hazard a guess as to where he got that idea from?

I do. This is metal we're talking about, not leather. It doesn't get more pliable as you work it, it gets harder. If it has any effect (which it won't) it will be to make the instrument vibrate less in future.

I particularly like the idea that you should play it "classic jazz albums". Like the thing has musical taste in some way.

Don't see why it shouldnt work. Herself beats me round the skull with my tenor and reckons either I will get smarter or the sax will become stupid, and I am certainly not going to tell her she is mistaken.
