Compensating System

Difference between baritone horn and euphonium by David R. Werden.
Bryan Foote's insight:

The four valved compensation system for Baritone/Euphonium and Tuba is the answer to mathmatical problems between tubing length and pitch/intonation.  It allows a player to play a full chromatic scale in tune throughout the entire range of a low brass instrument.

Harrison Wedge Mouthpiece

Harrison Wedge Mouthpiece | Brass Instrument Technology | Scoop.it
The Wedge is the most revolutionary improvement in trumpet mouthpieces in decades, providing enhanced sound, range, endurance, flexibility, and comfort. Great for players with braces.
Bryan Foote's insight:

The Wedge mouthpiece from Harrison is a new endeavor to make brass instrument mouthpieces conform more to the natural curve of a player's lips.  Traditional mouthpieces are have round flat rims, while the Wedge rim is oval and conforms to the shape of your embouchure, or the lip muscles you use to produce the sound.  This results in increased endurance, better sound projection, and more efficiency in tone production.

Soulo Mute

Soulo Mute | Brass Instrument Technology | Scoop.it
Best bucket mute for Trumpet, Tenor & Bass trombone. Endorsed by Wayne Bergeron & John Fedchock. Perfect pitch, fast on/off, no back-pressure. Trumpet, trombone bucket Mutes
Bryan Foote's insight:

The "Soulo" mute is a revolutionary design in mute technology.  Mutes have been used for over 100 years to change the timbre of the sound brass instruments make.  The "Soulo" mute is designed to replace old "Bucket" and "hat" style mutes, which are used to cut down on the higher frequencies of brass sound that can sound harsh to descriminating ears.  It does so without sacrificing intonation or effecting the way the horn blows.

Bryan Foote's insight:

Arturo Sandoval, Jazz trumpet virtuoso, performing on a carbon-fiber belled DaCarbo trumpet.  This design is a brand new idea in trumpetmaking, and gives the normally harsh trumpet a slightly softer, mellower voice that can get bright and brassy when pushed.
