Ullvén Mutes Trumpet POPY Cup Mute
Ullvén Mutes - Trumpet POPY Cup Mute
"The most easy blown cup mute I ever discovered, completely in tune. I'm happy to put my name to a real top product!"
- Maynard Ferguson
The Ullvén Popy Cup Mute is a versatile mute that can be adjusted to create a variety of tones with perfect pitch. With its adjustable cup, it can produce a range of sounds from a soft, warm tone to an open, bright and crispy sound that is rich in overtones. Additionally, the cup can be used as a plunger, and without it, the body of the mute can be used as a nice straight mute.
According to Mr. Gunnar Ullvén, the designer of the mute, "This mute gives the trumpet the sound of a French horn. With this mute, the brass player can cover 90% of the requirements, and it gives the soloist a greater space-sound. It has the capacity of increasing the overtones on the ground note producing a spherical or the so-called space-sound."
The Ullvén Popy Cup Mute is a wonderful mute that can be adjusted to cover all your needs. Whether you need a tight cup with a soft warm sound or an open, bright crispy sound with rich overtones, this mute can do it all. The cup can be used as a plunger, and without it, the torpedo/straight part becomes a nice "Straight" mute. Try it out for yourself and experience the range of sounds this versatile mute can produce.
