WHAT IS A HEAVY BOTTOM CAP?

A Heavy Bottom Cap replaces your 3rd or 4th Valve Bottom Cap and the same diameter and thread as the Valve Casing on your Instrument.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

Adding Mass which Attenuates the Harmonic Partials (the full spectrum of sound colour within each Semi-tone) is the science behind our 3rd or 4th Valve Heavy Bottom Caps, acting positively in terms of centering/securing the notes, aiding sound and projection.

The science is important reasoning, but actually trying an HBC is the real proof which you can do with our 1 Month Without Obligation Approval anywhere in the World.


3rd Valve HBCs for Sopranos, Cornets, Trumpets, Flugels and Tenor Horns; standard and with 24 Carat Gold Trim on the Knurl to match the Besson Prestige Bottom Caps.

4th Valve HBCs for Euphoniums; standard and with 24 Carat Gold Trim on the Knurl to match the Besson Prestige Bottom Caps.

WILL A 3rd or 4th VALVE HBC WORK FOR ME?

The evidence from over 1,000 HBCs sold is Yes and to make sure, you can try one for a Month Without Obligation and see the benefits for yourself - we ship Worldwide. With our unique world-beating 1 Month Approval offer you've got nothing to lose.


The common comment from players at all levels is . . . 

"It centres the notes and makes them far more secure"


Our HBCs have gone to the 

four corners of the globe.

MACHINING & ELECTRO-PLATING HBCs

HBC PRODUCTION

We produce all our HBCs from Soprano to Euphonium on a CNC Lathe. Each HBC is computer coded as the threads are different and produced in batches of 100 at a time; that's nearly 14 feet of brass bar!

HBC ELECTRO-PLATING

The HBCs are wired-up ready for electro-plating with a Bright Copper plate applied first which then gives perfect adhesion for the 25 Microns of Bright Silver Plate that we apply. 100% inspected and ready for shipping worldwide.
