Great lip-workout tool
Having read about the P.E.T.E and the effects others felt with it, I felt compelled to give it a go.
The quality is excellent and its comfortable to hold, comes with clear instructions on the different methods that can be used....
... but the big question is, does it work?
In short - Yes, with certain proviso's.
1) This is not a substitute for regular practice.
2) It's possible to over-use it and leave your lip muscles feeling overly stiff the following day (with undesirable effects on your playing) - there's a fine line between doing good and over-doing it.
3) It's not a good idea to use before practice. In the evening (in front of the TV, for example) when it's not going to impact on your days playing, however, does yield some positive effects.
There's no substitute for proper practice, but these exercizes compliment it nicely.
