What would happen if you combined the best aspects of both pistons and rotors in one valve?
Pistons have a direct stroke and a great feel in the hand. There is no change of motion in any type of linkage system, and maintenance is quite simple.
Rotors have extremely uniform windways inside. They are great for all types of music, including legato passages, and valved notes tend to play as well as open tones.
Building upon these great characteristics, the MAW Valve goes one step further. Many prior pistons, compromised by manufacturing irregularities (bumps) in the windways, are inherently distortive. Bumps alter sound waves. To avoid this, the MAW Valve opens the middle windway to create a smooth rotor-like passage. Both of the windways above and below this middle passage are now smooth and round inside the MAW Valve.
The geometry of the patented MAW Valve advances the playing characteristics of a horn. With the MAW Valve, sound waves traveling through the instrument are less disrupted. Playing is easier. There is a fuller sound with less effort. Notes tend to be more stable with increased clarity. The MAW valve combines the best qualities of pistons and rotors.
Advantages of the MAW Valve:
Improves note stability, legato passages, staccato attacks;
Makes playing easier;
Centers notes with precision;
Allows you to produce more sound with less effort;
Patented in the United States (US Patent 8227677) (corresponding international patents pending);
Our hand support system is a very simple yet very effective way of reducing, and in many cases eliminating, physical tension in the hand, arm and shoulder.
Players are becoming ever more aware of the problems caused by excess tension and physical strain in the body when holding and playing the trombone. This can affect a wide range of players, from young children through to older players with conditions such as arthritis, as well as other situations such as playing whilst marching or simply performing for extended periods without a break.
Musically, the benefits of being able to perform free from unecessary tension can be considerable, and in some cases our hand support has also reduced excessive pressure on the embochure.
Attaching to the main bell stay of the trombone, the pad of the hand support fits snugly accross the back of the left hand, providing all the necessary support needed to eliminate tension from the fingers of the left hand. When properly adjusted a player can even remove the fingers of their left hand from the slide stay leaving the hand support to take the weight of the instrument.
The hand support comes in a very simple kit form which is easy and straightforward to fit and adjust. When assembling the support and fitting to the main bell stay, care should be taken not to overtighten the screw, or this may damage the bell stay underneath. There should not be any need to overtighten the support to achieve the correct position.
Michael Rath hand supports have been designed and successfully tested with a number of different makes and models of trombone in addition to all Rath instruments. Aside from perhaps more obvious applications with bass and contra bass trombones, has proven to be equally as successfull with Bb/F tenor and even straight tenor trombones.
This split ring is adjusted around the milled base of the valve cap and is holds in place thanks to the spring effect. It can be removed and replaced easily.
Most musicians have enjoyed:
The optimised accuracy in both attaque and staccato
The more centered and compact like sound
The improved homogeneity and dynamics.
