Copper CUP Mute
As played and loved by legends like Clark Terry, Maynard Ferguson, Jon Faddis, Harry "Sweets" Edison etc….and the old Military Marching Band from Uddevalla ”Bohus Bataljon” founded in 1661!!
The Original Ullvén ”Copper CUP Mute" with an adjustable cup will cover all you need.
Can be all from a tight cup soft warm, to an open bright crispy sound, rich in overtones and perfect pitch.
The Cup can be used as a plunger and without the cup, the torpedo / Straight part becomes a nice "Straight" mute.
With this mute the brass player may cover 90% of the requirements and it gives the soloist a greater spacesound.
*The Mute in Brushed Copper are not treated with any preservative lacquer or anything equivalent.
This gives the sound of the mute a warm character whit a free and open resonance.
However, copper is easily oxidized and stained by fingerprints, but,this will will give the metal an attractive look and patina.
*This mute gives the trumpet the sound of a French horn. With this mute the brass player may cover 90% of the requirements and it gives the soloist a greater space-sound.
NOTE: All Ullvén mutes are delivered with oversized corks that has to be filed or cut, to fit each individual Instrument. This is important for best intonation and sound. It is advantageously recommended that the cork would be adjusted so that the Mute fit deep into the Instrument Bell.
