1- Aurus 7 EMBOUCHURE TRAINER (Aurus 7 helps relax the lower muscles of the jaw).
2- Aurus 7 ABDOMINAL TRAINER (Aurus 7 instructs the abdominal muscles to produce air at a rate sufficient to call a note and maintain it permanently).
3- Aurus 7 DIAPHRAGM TRAINER (helps you feel the air you need to inspire to support a note or a musical phrase)

This diaphragm trainer can be used by both professional and amateur musicians. In your study, it is advised to work Aurus 7 together with a metronome and a tuner; according to the manufacturer the improvement is faster.
Aurus 7 offers musicians, professionals as well as hobbyists and beginners, specific aid to strengthen their diaphragm along with the instrument.
So far, clarinettists and saxophonists had to carry out time-consuming and exhausting exercises without the instrument.
Now they can train their diaphragm by means of the patented Aurus 7, a metronome and a tuner.
The success is immediately perceptible.
The diaphragm trainer Aurus 7 causes a well-directed loss of air by lifting the upper lip. Thereby the abdominals muscles is used more.
In addition, the Aurus 7 helps to obtain a rich and warm sound, which occurs when more overtones resonate in the tone.
Therefore you must reduce the pressure on the reed of the clarinet or the saxophone.
The Aurus 7 offers you a specific aid to train this.
Suitable for all mouthpieces of clarinets and saxophones.
The individual parts of the Aurus 7 consist of food-safe silicon according to UVP 6 standard as well as stainless steel and are easy to clean.
You need a tuner, a metronome (or a clock with second hand) and a little patience.
Hold the Aurus 7 with your left hand (the knurled screw points to the right). Pull the diaphragm trainer over the top of the mouthpiece. Fix the Aurus 7 by turning the knurled screw.
Put your upper lip over the two wings, the lipping being normal. Inhale slowly and deeply (about 6-10 seconds) and blow powerfully without tonguing (belly thrust). Despite the emerging air loss, a tone must sound. The practising tone is right if a frequence of 440 Hz is reached.
Please check this with the tuner.
OPINIONS:- Peter Schreier- I can only thank Aurelian very much for the development of this tool and recommend it to anyone who is tinkering with his sound and not only wanting to try new acquisitions for instruments, mouthpieces, etc. Peter Schreier.
-T.P. -Aurus 7 diaphragm/embouchure trainer. Out of all these devices (Wind-O or Air Revelation Spirometer) this was the one I was the most suspicious of and maybe the one that has changed my playing the most.
D.R.- The most important thing that I mind is the result and it was noticeable from the first day on. Having experienced it myself I plan to begin to apply it in teaching practice, as well as savetitle it to my colleagues and friends, whom in Russia a lot.
-Y.T-I tried it, too, and I’m pretty impressed about the benefits one can have with that tool. I think it’s beneficial for the air as well as for the embouchure and your sound improves immediately. I can absolutely recommend it.
-Kelvin-It greatly improve our students tone to be a lot more solid and stable after using Diaphragm Trainer – Kelvin, Hong Kong Saxophone Association
-D.R.-The Aurus 7 it’s a very good device for increase the air capacity. I use frequently like a good warm-up before the practice, rehearsal, concert, etc. and the results and „breathing feeling“ is immediately super. Italy
-T.P. The Arus 7 diaphragm trainer on my Rascher Bari mouthpiece. This wasted by air supply faster than my CrossFit workout this morning. When you use this device you end up getting a totally different feeling about how you’re using your air supply. On baritone sax this is like a visit to the respiratory therapist. It’s been maybe two months that I’ve been using this and I really feel an improvement in my air-reed connection.
Questions & Answers
No, anyone can apply the diaphragm trainer at once, wether beginner or professional.
The exercises are suited to every level of play.
An exercise interval of 5 minutes once a day would be perfect.
Just rinse under the tap.
Aurus 7, use a standard tuning (442-443 Hz).
The air passes, but no tone is being created.
The air pressure which makes the reed swing is not yet reached. Try to keep the air pressure steady and quick (as if you blow out a candle from a long distance).
I’II recommend you to pull your tongue backwards as much as you can so as to free the windpipe.
