Ullvén Mutes Trombone Christian Lindberg Triple Straight Plate Mute
Ullvén Mutes - Chrisso's Triple Straight Plate Mute
"Lasse Lindgren took over the legendary "Ullvén Mutes for Brass Instruments". We have started a fantastic collaboration, and together created two beautiful new mutes: ”Chrisso ́s Triple Straight Plate mute ” & ”Chrisso ́s "Chilli Wah-Wow-mute” in a new Christian Lindberg signature mute serie. The collaboration was particularly successful, since Lasse not only masters the trumpet, but is a phenomenal ”superbone” player, and therefore understand all the different details that needs to be taken in to consideration for making mutes for trombones that work well on stage."

About Chrisso's Triple Straight Plate Mute
After preliminary tests and some freehand attempts by my mute maker Mikael, we had some very flat cups for Christian to try. "These are no ordinary cup mutes", I said. They are flat, more like a Plate mute. ”Who cares” Christian replied, it's how it sounds and playes that matters. After a while of testing, he shouted, ”Bingo!” – and he discovered that the flat plate/cup can be used in three different ways. ”This is really triple mute!” Christian was happy: “great sound in the whole register, I put my signature on this."
A new great mute for Christian and the Trombone world was born!!
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.
