Hagmann Heavy valve cap
Michael Rath heavy valve caps are designed for use with Rath Custom Series trombones fitted with Hagmann valves.
Replacing the regular weight valve caps, our heavy caps add stability, core and particularly projection to the entire range of the instrument, without sacrificing flexibility.
Importantly, testing has shown that our heavy weight valve caps give equally good performance with any trombone using a Hagmann valve, in some cases dramatically improving the playing characteristics.
The Michael Rath heavy valve caps do not require any prior adjustment to the valve or instrument.
If you have a Hagmann valve after late 2016 it will most likely require the new style heavy valve cap.
