The HALSTEAD BUZZ-BUDDY is an ingenious and novel practising tool.
It encourages, focuses and strengthens the mouthpiece buzz by adding a similar degree of resistance to that of a horn.
It has long been recognized by many players and teachers that too much buzzing on the mouthpiece alone can cause undesirable results to the embouchure.
The HALSTEAD BUZZ-BUDDY was developed specifically to address this problem.
It is a narrow-bore brass tube 180mm long, tapered at both ends, with a single vent-hole strategically placed quite close to the mouthpiece-receiver end. Its fundamental pitch with the hole closed is a horn in F's 'C' above middle C.
All pitches lower than this can be buzzed (as 'factitious' tones bent down from the fundamental) with the hole closed by a finger or thumb.
An un-vented pipe of this length would not produce any further buzzable pitches lower than 'top C' (the 2nd harmonic an octave higher than the fundamental).
Opening the Buzz-Buddy's vent-hole permits the buzzing of all higher pitches, as far as one's embouchure can sound.
The Halstead Buzz-Buddy is made of high-quality brass, hand polished to a gleaming finish, and is small enough to fit in a pocket.
It is less expensive than a good-quality mouthpiece.
