Ullvén Mutes Trombone Funky BOP Mute
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
Introducing a stunning and high-performing mute that produces a wonderful "Harmon" type of sound - a perfect addition to any brass player's collection. The pitch is spot-on, and the sound is equal in all registers, making it a versatile choice for both sectional and solo use.
These mutes are handmade with care by Ullven Mutes in Sweden and designed for the renowned Swedish trombonist, Nils Landgren.

It is designed to fit all Tenor Trombone bells, making it a convenient and reliable option for any musician.
