Poor Tuning is Caused by Wide Pitch Centers

The Tuning Sleeve works by pushing the player harder towards the sweet spot. This makes it easier for players to be 100% sure they are in the center of the pitch. By inserting a Tuning Sleeve into the bell of a French horn, Trombone, or Mellophone, it will make it play cleaner, more in tune, with a better tone, and it will continue to improve the sound and resonance of the player over time.
  • The Tuning Sleeve is designed to not absorb any tone or resonance.
  • Tuning Sleeves are VERY SURDY, HEAT PROOF, COLD PROOF, and WATERPROOF.
  • It also greatly helps reduce edge and distortion at very loud volumes on any horn!
French Horn Fundamentals
Most people play horns with wide pitch centers, which is caused by a large bell throat. The Tuning Sleeve fixes this by simulating a smaller bell throat.  So, you get the control and intonation of a small bell throat horn with the sound of a large bell throat horn.    
  • Center of notes have more gravity so notes lock in better
  • Improved intonation
  • Cleaner lip trills and fast passages
  • Cleaner articulation
