New flugelhorn mouthpiece that helps with endurance and upper register playing.
The Asymmetric Poet Flugelhorn mouthpiece incorporates new design, manufacturing and assembly features that raise your high range limit, and in most cases, double your endurance. The Poet provides greater cup volume, required for the Flugelhorn , while retaining the lower lip restrictor, the signature feature of an Asymmetric mouthpiece. The Asymmetric feature eases the whole playing experience, and provides flexibility, comfort, ease of high notes, and above all – sound.
When the ultimate expression of intimacy is desired, there is nothing like the haunting, warm and seductive sound of the Flugelhorn. For the last 50 years or so, trumpet players have found that the flugelhorn, with its ease of playing and fingering (same as the trumpet), along with its sound and adaptability, has given players an instant doubling horn with little or no work to master. But the Flugelhorn does have a few limitations.
Most players find the higher end of the range (high A and above), elusive. And, endurance also, sometimes suffers, especially with the larger Flugelhorns and mouthpieces. The POET solves these problems and provides you with the ultimate in Flugelhorn capability. The combination of your flugelhorn and the Poet mouthpiece gives you a warm and buttery sound.
