Product Description (Flugelhorn plunger mute)
This flugelhorn plunger mute provides exceptional convenience for musicians who need to adjust their sound. It is also made with well-thought characteristics that allow for improved sound quality and performance. A flugelhorn plunger mute is a great option for those looking to enhance their instrument’s sound in a variety of settings. With its ease and quality, this flugelhorn plunger mute is sure to be a valuable asset to any musician’s collection. It features a leather layer inside, which provides a much sharper sound than mutes with textile inside layers, and also helps to reflect the sound better and create more interesting sonic effects. You will definitely notice an increase in accuracy and a rougher sound during practice when using this leather mute. Its form somehow resembles a traditional jazz mute, making it popular among jazz musicians. However, apart from rubber and metal models, our plunger mute offers superior sound quality and improved accuracy.
Product Description ( T.A.F.)
We’re happy to present the specially designed adaptor from KGUmusic which enables a flugelhorn mouthpiece to perfectly fit the trumpet. As you know, the visual difference between the trumpet and the flugelhorn has a direct impact on how these instruments sound. The trumpet sounds more vivid and sharp, while the flugelhorn produces a mellower and warmer sound. The trumpet mouthpiece is longer and is characterized by the shallow cup, which results in brighter and higher notes. The flugelhorn mouthpiece has a deeper V-shaped cup and that’s what makes this instrument sound warm with easy and clear low notes.
The KGUmusic flugelhorn mouthpiece adaptor compensates for the difference between the flugelhorn and the trumpet mouthpiece by adding some length. Thus, your trumpet acquires a mellower sound without distorting the register. It means you don’t need to switch between two instruments anymore. Especially, if you have to perform some lyrical pieces with a deep sound, but you want your case to fit the minimum carry-on baggage dimensions. Or if you’re not planning to take many things with you. It’s much easier to take a mouthpiece adaptor for a trumpet rather than carry an additional instrument. Take the adaptor from your mouthpiece pouch and place it on the instrument. Done, you’re a half to a warmer and richer flugelhorn sound without any mess.
Of course, you can change the sound, by using proper breathing, which can be very exhausting. But if your conductor doesn’t insist on using only a flugelhorn or maybe you need your flugelhorn just for three bars, it’s more convenient to take the adaptor than carrying two instruments with you. You can also use the adaptor for a flugelhorn sound, depending on your personal vision as a musician, for instance, if you feel that some parts of the musical piece would sound better if you could change the timbre. The adaptor can be used by either a single musician or a group of performers altogether.
