Shofar With Mouthpiece

Question

If I were to adapt (insert) a trumpet mouthpiece at the shofar, would the shofar still be kosher to blow it during its proper time?
Thanks

  1. No, such a Shofar could not be used for the obligation to blow the Shofar. The halacha is that the mouth of the blower must be directly on the Shofar without anything else intervening.
