WHAT IS A HEAVY BOTTOM CAP?

A Heavy Bottom Cap replaces your 3rd Valve Bottom Cap. It is 38mm long and the same diameter and thread as your Instrument.


The proven science is that a Heavy Bottom Cap on just the 3rd Valve helps fantastically in terms of sound and projection, adding Mass which Attenuates the Harmonic Partials (the full spectrum of sound colour within each semi-tone).

RESEARCH & TECHNICAL

The past three years of trials on all Piston Valved Soprano Cornets, Cornet, Trumpets, Flugel Horns and Tenor Horns has clearly shown that just a 3rd Valve Heavy Bottom Cap is by far the most effective and popular, aiding sound projection and ease of playing . The Science behind its' success is the Adds Mass which Attenuates the Harmonic Partials (the full spectrum of sound colour within each semi-tone). But just try it and feel the positive difference.


In tests, extra Heavy Bottom Caps on the remaining 1st & 2nd valve bottoms reduced the benefits that just the single 3rd Valve Heavy Bottom Cap produced, so we recommend you just use one Heavy Bottom Cap on the 3rd Valve for the best results and the 4th Valve on 4 Valve Instruments.

PRODUCTION

Each HBC is made in the UK to the closest of tolerances by computer-controlled lathes ensuring the highest quality.  Every thread is machined specifically to suit each make and model of instrument, be it current Yamaha, Besson, Bach, Sterling, Courtois, Schilke, Couesnon, Stomvi, Getzen, Eclipse and indeed all makes, plus our HBCs for vintage New York and Mount Vernon Bach's, Conn, Reynolds, Olds, King, Selmer (Paris), Benge, Holton and the good old Boosey & Hawkes Sovereign Round Stamp instruments.


The manufacturing process is similar in cost to making a mouthpiece, apart from the extra cost involved in high tolerance internal thread-cutting and is reflected in the similarity of purchase price of quality mouthpieces such as Bach and Schilke around £70, 

depending where you buy from.


Each HBC is plated with 24 microns of Silver or 24 Carat Gold Plate.
