Ullvén Mutes - Trombone POPY Cup Mute

The original Ullvén POPY Cup Mute with an adjustable cup will cover all your trombone cup mute needs.

Can be all from a tight cup soft warm, to an open bright crispy sound, rich in overtones and perfect in pitch. The Cup can be used as a plunger and without the cup, the torpedo/Straight part becomes a nice ”Straight” mute. With this mute the brass player may cover 90% of the requirerments and it gives the soloist a greater sound.

What's more, put a sock or other cloth material in the cup and use it tight, you will have a great practice mute.

"I love the tenor cup you made! I play it all the time. It has this beautiful vintage quality to it, where you can get the cup mute timbre & sound like JJ Johnson or Frank Rosolino."

-Matt Hall (Freelance Trombonist Musician, Jazz Trombone Instructor San Diego State University and Musician U.S. Marine Corps)

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.
