Stratos – a global product or just hype ?

I am sure we all know of products that make advertising claims that cannot be checked or be backed up by data. Some of you may have noticed adverts, in Brass magazines and online, where I have claimed that hundreds of Stratos Embouchure Systems have been purchased worldwide and wondered if that is really true and what it means. After collating the sales data from this website I can produce the following list of countries where brass players have purchased STRATOS:

As you can see with 22 Countries split across 5 continents it is entirely justifiable to label STRATOS as a truly global product.  Also bear in mind this data doesn’t include the hundreds of STRATOS sold by our resellers in the UK, Europe and USA.
