Newly updated in 2012Best Brass has developed an excellent warm-up and practice mute that allows playing throughout all ranges and dynamic levels with uncompromised intonation and tone. You can play almost anytime, anywhere without projecting a resonant sound, allowing for backstage warm-up or apartment room practice. These mutes are very small, barely protruding from the bell.
Best Brass has added a plastic version of their wonderful practice mute. The Best Brass Jr. works just as well as the metal version and fits in all trumpets, despite the "Jr." in the name.
The Yamaha Silent Brass system is a complete portable and soundproof system, and could be the most innovative product for brass instruments since the valve. With Silent Brass, you'll hear a sound inside the earphones so rich and full you'll think you are standing on a concert hall stage. The Yamaha Silent Brass system lets you play your horn anywhere you want, anytime you want, and with just the kind of ambiance you feel like. You can mix into the sounds of a CD player, a Silent Piano, an electronic keyboard or other Silent Brass, and output your playing into a tape deck or even an amp with speakers. Never again will you have to search for a practice room, have to 'stop because it's getting late'.
The Yamaha Silent Brass system for trumpet and cornet includes the ST9 Personal Studio, PM7 Pickup mute, and earphones. Separate Pickup Mutes are also available.
The Silent brass trumpet pickup mute is made of lightweight plastic, with a unique rubber sealer to hold it securely in the bell. When used with the Silent Brass system, it has none of that stuffy restricted feeling of conventional practice mutes. In fact, it blows so close to a natural open horn that you simply won't believe it until you actually experience it for yourself. Play high or low, loud or soft, and your pitch will remain true and centered. A special microphone inside the mute relays your sound to the Personal Studio
