- Perfect intonation
By stopping the horn bell by hand or with a stopping mute the tone rises a half tone, but often these notes
are out of tune (sharp). Correcting this problem requires embouchure adjustments that can threaten
security. The Powerstopf provides you with secure intonation.
- Reproduces hand stopping sound
Working with a stopping mute often results in a brassy tone. The combination of aluminum for direct
sound, and an oak "bell" for general color, results in a hand stopped-like sound.
- Balanced resistance
Resistance is a feature well known by horn players. hand stopping increases resistance, and sometimes
influences the pitch and self-confidence, as well. The Powerstopf is well balanced in all registers.
- Comfortable grip
The Powerstopf is designed to be handled easily and make for quick changes to open playing
