Ullvén Mutes Trumpet Stubby Bop Mute
Ullvén Mutes - Trumpet Stubby Bop Mute
"I DESIGNED "STUBBY" to be a solo mute, with a personal sound a little different from others. I little louder and more open free-blowing with a "Bluesy" character. I wanted a mute to use acoustic with my quartet in a small club, a mute that "opens up" sound wise even when playing soft and low volume, or sometimes also when I play lead in a Big Band. It has no stem or insert tube, which was not needed or wanted. Me and others love this mute for its sound of it's own."
- Lasse Lindgren
The Ullven Stubby Bop Mute is a "Harmon-Style" mute that is quickly catching on in the U.S. for trumpet players that play jazz, blues and pop music. Designed by Swedish trumpeter Lasse Lindgren.
NOTE: All Ullvén mutes are delivered with oversized corks that has to be filed or cut, to fit each individual Instrument. This is important for best intonation and sound. It is advantageously recommended that the cork would be adjusted so that the mute fits deep into the bell.
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.
