Ullvén Mutes - Trombone Funky BOP Mute

"I'm proud to include this new great mute for Star Trombonist Niljs Landgren, in the Ullvén catalog. I have known Nils for 40 years so I know what he wants, the muted sound of Jazz Legend Miles Davies. But to make a mute with this character for a trombone is not easy, since the trombone is a lower and bigger sounding instrument, it is more or less impossible. But now we have succeeded with the "Sound" and a mute that easily plays all the registers, from low E and up, with an open free sound."

- Lasse Lindgren

A beautiful looking and great playing mute, with a wonderful "Harmon" type of sound.
Perfect in pitch and equal sound in all registers. Great both for sectional and solo use.
Made in Natural Aluminium or in Chili Red Laquer. Fits all Tenor Trombone bells.

About Ullvén Mutes

Mutes made by the Swedish company Ullvén & Co has since the late 1950's been considered to be one of the world’s foremost brands. Leading professional brass musicians use and appreciate the mutes. Trumpet giants such as Dizzy Gillespie and Maynard Ferguson used them and were also involved in developing new Ullvén mutes.

Unfortunately, around the turn of the millennium 2000, production ceased for various reasons. Almost 20 years later trumpeter Lasse Lindgren can proudly and happily announce the resurrection of the brand. Each Ullvén mute is handcrafted to the same specifications as the originals using the same tooling and materials.
