Finger Exerciser for Guitar & Horn Players
Playing a stringed instrument or orchestral horn instrument requires hand and finger strength, as well as the skills and talent. While skills and talent require use of the instrument, you can improve your finger strength while watching TV or listening to music using this Finger Exerciser from Monoprice!
The Monoprice Finger Exerciser is the ultimate finger, hand, wrist, and forearm fitness tool for musicians. Regular use of the exerciser improves strength, flexibility, and the individual finger control necessary to play guitar, other stringed instruments, and brass instruments with superb accuracy, tone, and clarity.
The spring tension on each valve is individually adjustable from 4 ~ 7 lbs of force. To decrease tension, turn the knurled tension adjustment ring clockwise, as indicated by the amplitude indicator on the valve body. To increase tension, turn the knurled ring counterclockwise.
Starting with the lowest finger pressure and only a few reps, you can gradually increase pressure and the number of reps until you are doing ten or more reps per finger at the highest pressure, two or three times per day. Along with the strength will come the nerve and muscle memory to improve individual control of the fingers, especially the ring and pinky fingers.
PROS: Nice rubberized buttons and base
PROS: Works Great
CONS: There is not a lot of difference between the 4 lb and 7 lb settings.
PROS: Works Great.
CONS: There isn't a lot of difference between the 4 lb and 7 lb settings.
PROS: Easy adjustable tension on each finger.
Feels nice in the hand
CONS: Cheap plastic feel to the tension adjustment.
Hard to tell what tension is set on each finger
The dial does not stop at full tension, it just skips and it's hard to tell if you're at max or min tension.
The difference between the lowest and highest settings is almost imperceptible to me. For finger strength, I'm back to a squeeze ball, and use this just for 3rd/4th fingers.
PROS: cheap, lightweight, great design and function
CONS: none, from my standpoint.
PROS: Does what it says it does - simple and easy.
CONS: A few questions on whether I'm increasing or decreasing the tension
CONS: Not well made, breaks while using it.
