A friend of mine mentioned the other day that the tweeqers website was gone. I went a few days after to see if maybe the site was being re-worked and have also discovered there are no traces to be found!

Anyone know if Tweeqers are gone?!

Yeah the website has been down for a while. Google Mark Ridenour and try to find a way to contact him via e-mail or I know he is on facebook.

Also, if he has stopped making them, you can get similar results with lead tape from a golf shop. Just make sure you cover it with something for extended use.

Mark is still making tweeqers, but his website got hacked years ago and his business has been thriving simply on word of mouth. If you're interested and need a way to contact him, just send me a message!

I just got some a few weeks ago because he was here in town. I think you can also find them on his Facebook page.

Damm that's pretty expensive. I've heard really good things so I'll have to get a set, probably for my C trumpet and see if they're worth getting some for Bb and piccolo.
