    I would like to preface this post by saying that I don't know the owner of this company, I'm not being payed to do this, and this is NOT meant to be an advertisement in any way.

    By some happenstance, I stumbled across this site today: Truevee - Solutions for the Professional Trumpet Player

    I looked through the whole site, and I must say that I'm impressed! I'm surprised that I haven't heard of them before. Has anybody tried out any of their products? Or own any?

    Strange they don't make a cornet to trumpet mouthpiece adapter. I'm not sold on the concept of rifling in backbores and leadpipes--if it really works it would have been thought of and used long ago.

    I dunno.

    I contacted them about a trumpet to tenor trombone adapter--they explained that they could and would make anything, however they focused on adapters that were unavailable elsewhere. Thus things like an adapter that allows the use of a trumpet mouthpiece on a cornet. I didn't end up buying an adapter from them but the company's dealings with me were very professional.

    Being a part time french horn player, I'm seriously considering having them make a french horn to flugelhorn mouthpiece adapter...could be fun... Now I just need a new flugel...(planning on a Kanstul 1526 soon)!

    I acquired a Holton Collegiate cornet from Ivan that he had modified with a trumpet mouthpiece receiver. IMO, while it plays well enough, it now doesn't sound like either, but it is lots of fun. I do have an adapter from Farkas FH mpc to my F mellophone that IMO makes the mellophone approach closer to the sound of a true FH ... but still no kewpie doll.
