It has the essential feature, as in any instrument, of increasing the harmonic range thanks to the concomitance of the bells built-in the bottom caps.
This device greatly facilitates the dynamics of the trumpet itself giving a greater volume to the harmonics, from note to note, achieving a sound implosion.
With the MaxiClapper bottom caps we accomplish something essential for the players: dynamic COMFORT that widely eases the performance. Thanks to the higher size than the clapper caps, it improves the sound emission and the passage of the note, it powers and maximizes the lateral dimension, functioning as external resonators. The emergence of a 6th harmonic is achieved thanks to the way the bells inside are built and tuned.
The set consists of three pieces: clapper, cap and screw, the last two joined by an O-ring. The clapper and the screw are made of brass and the cap of aluminum.
The MaxiClapper tonality must be a 6th up the instrument tonality. Available: C / D / E / F / G / A / B.
Stomvi recommends putting 2 MaxiClappers:
- Bb instrument: MaxiClapper in G (#993134-G)
- C instrument: MaxiClapper in A (# 993134-A)
- D instrument: MaxiClapper in B (#993 134-B)
- Eb instrument: MaxiClapper in C (#993134-C)
- F instrument: MaxiClapper in D (#993134-D)
- G Instrument: MaxiClapper in E (#993134-E)
- A instrument: MaxiClapper in F (#993134-F)
In 4 valve instruments (resource of fourth) it is advisable to have a Maxiclapper at one sixth of the fundamental and another one at one sixth of the fourth.
Example: Piccolo trumpet in Bb: Maxiclapper in G (sixth of Bb) and maxiclapper in D (sixth of F).
