One of the downsides of travel is not being able to practice as much, or as freely, as usual. Our new ACB Travel Bundle will help you maintain your chops quietly, conveniently, and affordably!
This bundle includes:
- ACB Large Bell Pocket Trumpet
- Bremner sshhmute Practice Mute
- Warburton PETE Pro Embouchure Exerciser
ACB Large Bell Pocket Trumpet
The Perfect Combination of Fun and Practicality!
This is a really nice playing pocket trumpet that's perfect for travel. The large bell flare fits standard trumpet mutes, so you can bring a horn and a practice mute without taking up much space. Like with our Doubler's line, the ACB pocket trumpets are ultrasonically cleaned and optimized (valve alignment, etc.) prior to shipment.
- Monel valves (with ACB precision valve alignment)
- Yellow brass bell
- 3rd slide adjustable ring
- Bell: 4 7/8th inch bell with a nice flare (fits standard mutes!)
- Bore size: .459"
The ML bore works really well with the tighter wrap of this trumpet.
Included with this horn are a nice ACB-Logo Polyfoam gig case with backpack straps, and a stock non-ACB 7C mouthpiece.
Bremner sshhmute Practice Mute
See why the sshhmute is taking over the practice mute market! This is one of our best selling products here at ACB. Available for trumpet/cornet, piccolo trumpet, and flugelhorn, these mutes play well in tune and have an optimized resistance level. Great for practicing when you're staying in a hotel (or at the in-laws'). Check out some of the videos below to see details of the construction and development process!
Features of the sshhmute:
- Gives accurate tuning throughout the range.
- Helps develop and open the throat muscles to give better air flow, thus improving the tone.
- Has an improved resistance factor, allowing you to extend practice sessions and enhances pitching and accuracy.
- Designed to fit into all brands and models of instruments without compromising effectiveness.>
- It is made from lightweight ABS plastic which will not cause your instrument to feel any heavier when playing.>
- Helps you warm up before going on stage.
- Weighs only 1.62 oz (46g) about 18% less than traditional metal mutes.
- Won't dent if you happen to drop it.
- It is competitively priced, yet offers more benefits than most other mutes.
We LOVE these mutes at the shop! So excited to offer them to our customers.
If you have any questions about these mutes let us know. They are the best!
Warburton P.E.T.E. Pro
The P.E.T.E. PRO is an advanced-level isometric strengthening tool to be used by experienced altissimo players. It is important that users have well-developed embouchure strength and/or previous experience with the P.E.T.E. for Brass before using this model. Players who are required to regularly play in the extreme upper register, or those who have reached a plateau in their efforts with the original P.E.T.E. will find that the P.E.T.E. PRO provides them with the additional challenge they’re looking for. We have researched the effectiveness of this new developmental tool by sending it out to select professional players, and have received enthusiastic reports.
Praise for the P.E.T.E. Pro:
"I have been using the regular P.E.T.E. ever since Terry introduced me to it years ago. It has become one of my “Don’t leave home without it” tools. In the years of using it, I've found that I have to be careful not to overuse it as it really gives the muscles surrounding the lips a workout. Then came the new “P.E.T.E. PRO.” This new P.E.T.E. has a smaller disc that concentrates the workout spot on your embouchure without over taxing the orbicularis oris (muscles around lips).
"I highly recommend the P.E.T.E. PRO. It will help maintain your endurance on the days off, and it will help you build strength and power with your daily practice."
"The P.E.T.E. PRO is a lifesaver when it comes to keeping your chops in shape. The smaller disc on the pro helps to work the muscles that are used when playing in the extreme upper register. I like to use it with the regular Pete alternating between the two in my daily practice routine. It has really helped me to train my chops to really lock in on the slots above high c. It is also great to keep in shape when traveling. Sometimes while on tour, I have travel days which prevent me from getting a lot of playing in and the P.E.T.E. keeps everything in shape. The Pete pro is key for upper register development and consistency. Thanks Warburton team!"
"When Terry introduced the original P.E.T.E. a few years ago, I ordered one immediately. It worked so well that I started referring to it as a 'gig on a stick.' On days I am actually unable to play my horn, when properly used, the P.E.T.E. works out my chops as much as a standard 4 hour engagement would. Because of the smaller diameter of the new P.E.T.E. PRO, working out with this version is even more challenging and beneficial. I refer to the new P.E.T.E. PRO as '2 gigs on a stick.'"
