We’ve compiled questions most often sent in by our clients. Please take a look prior to contacting us.
When should I use the reversible feature?
When using the Wraplift, if it contacts bare skin, the black leather side should face in.
If it contacts clothing, the white suede side should face in (prevents slippage).
Which way faces up?
What are the uses of the Mouthpiece Patches?
The Mouthpiece Patch is applied on the top of the mouthpiece where the teeth contact the beak and helps prevent mouthpiece slippage and wearing down of the mouthpiece.
Our patches are extremely thin, yet produce just enough friction to allow for a smoother production and control of sound.
Why does it only come in white?
Our choice materials prioritize function first and hence prefer to deliver a product in its unaltered form so as to not diminish its effect(s).
How does it reduce pressure on the gums of the teeth?
When using patches that have too much anti-slip properties or thickness, movement of the teeth places higher strain on the gums supporting the mouthpiece and embouchure. Our patches have minimally sufficient surface friction and limited cushioning so as to lessen the pressure on the gums.
How does it reduce stress on the right thumb?
We employed a unique design and material to widely distribute the weight of the instrument, removing pressure that would otherwise be concentrated on one point on the thumb.
It also is designed to envelop the clarinet’s thumb rest to allow for increased stability when holding the clarinet.
How does it improve overall resonance?
When excess stress is places on the thumb, this stress travels to the chest and throat area, restricting these muscles and hindering resonance.
The BREATHTAKING Thumb has been designed to relieve stress in these areas and allow for unhindered resonance.
