Some players prefer not to have any products attached to their horn in order to keep the response and vibration as 'pure' as possible. This 'Sound Protector' is an ingenious way to acheive this while protecing the instrument from the perspiration which often can damage the lacquer. Made in from Organic materials in an Environmentally Friendly manner.
Sound protector; while the conventional Leather Guard the leadpipe and the sound completely surrounds and thus limits the response capability of the horn, the sound protector is only a small area on the horn and allows the instrument to vibrate freely. In addition, not "dry" sound protector on the horn as the conventional hand protection and thus the sweat can not inflict on the surface of the instrument.
-Material: Leather (biologically tanned and dyed; free of heavy metals, formaldehyde or organic solvents)
It protects the horn great and gives you more resonance than an average wrap. You can adjust the wrap to either fit snug or loose. Padding on the interior of the wrap is very comfortable.
Aside from adequately protecting the horn, this guard scores bonus points for actually providing comfort to the user: the palm area has a double layer of leather, which makes it nicely cushioned, while at the same time not being too thick to be used by smaller hands.
