Randefalk Music was founded in 2017 by the international and professional musician Patrik Randefalk. Patrik has experienced all sides of a musician´s everyday life; travelling long distances with large instruments, and the need for regular practise. This has led to a desire to develop better solutions for different music related issues. After years of developing his own mouthpieces for euphonium, other musicians contacted him asking if they could buy these mouthpieces. Not long after he started to develop mouthpieces for the full range of brass instruments and other music related products. Patrik is passionate and driven to help both professional musicians, music-students and amateur-musicians to an even better music life.
Today some products are in stock, others are still on the drawing board or in different stages of innovation processes. Randefalk products range from mouthpieces for all brass instruments to sophisticated innovative multifunctional flight cases and gig bags.
Some of the most innovative products are the 'Ryton' mouthpieces. These mouthpieces are a good alternative for musicians with allergies or sensitive skin who often defer to plastic mouthpieces which can loose much of the response. Ryton is made of Polycarbonate, glass and nylon. The mouthpieces have a ceramic feel, and are extremely vibrant in sound, and most importantly - tough.
Another fantastic product is the Flow Partner. A clever buzzing aid, the unique combination of an internal conical shape and a rotating end piece, means with a simple twist you can control the airflow to achieve balanced resistance in all different registers. Suits professional musicians, music teachers and any students warming up and wanting to strengthen their breathing.
