Choice of materials

Rule of thumb: For optimal performance use at least a quality lefreQue that equals the material of your instrument or a better quality. Being musicians ourselves, we understand that 'sound' is something very personal. That's why we offer a wide range of materials with different tonal qualities.

Enjoy your lefreQue
To help you find the best match with your personal preferences, we hand you some material characteristics for guidance:

Brass

Clear sound, a lot of 'core' in the tone and fast response.

Red Brass

Round sound, a lot of 'core' in the tone and fast response.

Red Brass/Silver plated

Round sound, a lot of 'core' in the tone and fast response. The silver plating will give the upper harmonics more brilliance.

Red Brass/Gold plated

Round sound, a lot of 'core' in the tone and fast response. The gold plating will give the upper harmonics more depth and warmth.

Solid Silver

Pure, warm sound abounding with overtones, more mass, speed, brilliance and increased flexibility in dynamics.

Solid Silver/Gold plated

All of the solid silver. More warmth and fluid tone production in the higher frequencies.

Solid Gold

Unequaled purity. Warm and fluid tone production in the whole range of frequencies. Incredible overtones.

For all wind instruments

Finding that the invention worked perfectly on all types of saxophone Hans decided to put the lefreQue on his flutes. On the flute there are no cork connctions but the lefreQue does the job in the same way essentially.
On a flute you slide the pieces into each other, thereby effecting a sound breach, which again will be corrected by using the lefreQue.
