OVERVIEW

Improved Design!

Made of the highest quality hand-spun aluminum, Jo-Ral mutes are designed and tested to perform evenly in all registers. Alternative materials used on the bottom of the mute create varying sound characteristics for special effect, giving musicians the freedom of artistic expression. Multi-propose all-aluminum mutes provide a bright muted sound, while brass-bottom mutes impart a slightly warmer, confidential sound ideal for smaller settings. For a darker, more mellow effect, copper-bottom mutes are the perfect choice. And all-copper mutes create a deep, rich, sound. Jo-Ral mutes also feature neoprene-enhanced composite cork pads that provide extra durability. The result is a more pliable cork that grips well and doesn't dry out, become brittle or break off ” so it lasts longer while easily accommodating fine adjustments for a perfect fit.

Really cool sound

Comments about Jo-Ral Copper Bottom Flugelhorn Bubble Mute:

I was really impressed with how this mute sounds on my Kanstul 1525 flugelhorn. I prefer this sound over my Stradivarius with a Harmon mute. I have a few issues with it though. The copper is not laquered, so it will tarnish. And it's very fragile. Mine took a lot of damage falling about 1 foot onto a linoleum floor. My Harmon has taken less damage, falling from my trumpet bell onto a hard tile floor. But overall, a great mute - just be very gentle with it, and keep it shiny with vinegar or lemon juice and salt.

Comments about Jo-Ral Copper Bottom Flugelhorn Bubble Mute:

great looking mute, very good construction as in all the jo-ral mutes, but alas, it doesn't fit a Benge FL-5 flugel, the bell flare is just too big for the mute, can't "grab" on to anything, maybe an FL-1 or 3 ?, or another brand of flugel, but the FL-5, sorry, it's a no-go,........... bummers

Very unique mute!

Comments about Jo-Ral Copper Bottom Flugelhorn Bubble Mute:

I bought this mute just for the fun of it, and I really like it! With my flugelhorn, this mute has a much different harmon sound that a trumpet. It has the buzz still, but there is more of an airy, puffy sound to it as well. It has a few tuning issues, but then again, what mute doesn't?

NIce mute, but not a necessity

Comments about Jo-Ral Copper Bottom Flugelhorn Bubble Mute:

This mute sounds very close to a trumpet with harmon. To get the buzz associated with trumpet with harmon, one must play pretty loud on flugelhorn. Some may ask why any mute for flugel would ever be of use, and in my opinion, this mute has a few practical uses. I bought this mute because I am playing a theater show with very fast instrument and mute changes. Having this mute makes my life easier for some of those changes, and with it, I don't have to prepare the trumpet with the harmon mute while I play a passage on flugel. Also, if a dinner music gig comes up that someone may want to play mostly on flugel, but a few tunes with a harmon sound, this mute could facilitate only bringing one horn. I'm sure there are more uses, but these are the two I can think of.

A great harmon style mute for Flugel !

Comments about Jo-Ral Copper Bottom Flugelhorn Bubble Mute:

I finally purchased this mute after using ill fitting trombone mutes (which of course they are designed for bone after all) I am currently playing the Barrington model flugel which is great as well . I wanted to play Flugel only but I would miss the Harmon style sound. Now I am able to play flugel exclusively. I hope that Jo-ral will offer ALL of their mute line as built for flugel . Great mute!

Nice Harmon-type sound

By

Comments about Jo-Ral Copper Bottom Flugelhorn Bubble Mute:

Very good contrast with the open, mellow flugelhorn sound. It is quieter than I thought it would be but I'm using a Wick 3 so that may have a lot to do with it. I double on trombone and this mute will work on trombone in all registers with the stem in but does not work in the low register with the stem out. Low range is great with or without the stem on flugelhorn. It is nice to have a mute designed just for flugel but an added bonus is that I can also use it for trombone.
