What it is:
A precision machined, silver plated brass ring that fits around the receiver of Bach and Getzen trumpets.
What it does:
The Reeves Receiver Ring improves slotting and projection, centers the tone and strengthens the harmonics. This results in better projection and a stabilized upper register.
How it works:
The receiver ring prevents the dissipation of energy that often occurs at the interface of the mouthpiece and the receiver. Many players use it all the time, while some use it for lead playing, then slide it off for a less intense sound for playing solos.

Can't believe the difference this item made. Tone quality much more focused and better projection with no more effort required.
