Newly updated in 2012
Best 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.

Insert in any Wah-Wah(Ww) mutes! Transforms Ww into a practice mute. Just insert ‘Warm-up nano’in your Ww(Cool Jazz style*), and it reduces instrument output to a whisper while maintaining the full tonal characteristics of your favorite mute. The pitch, intonation, how it speaks...etc. All of which are kept as it is, so you can always practice with a familiar feel. Place on any* mouthpieces! ( * Trumpets, Cornets, Flugelhorns ) As a Buzzing device. Put your mouthpiece in Warm-up nano, and you can do a buzzing practice. Internal design of nano is accoustically well considered, and it generates appropriate resistances. As a result, your lips will get much more natural vibration. With the accompanying strap-holder, it can hang on any bags or instrument cases. Now, hit the road and Warm-up anywhere at anytime.

Spun aluminum with a distinctive textured finish, dramatically reduces volume without distorting tone quality, for quiet practice sessions.

Made of the highest-quality hand-spun aluminum, Jo-Ral mutes are designed and tested to perform evenly in all registers. Jo-Ral mutes also feature neoprene-enhanced composite cork pads that provide extra durability. The result is a more pliable cork that grips well and doesn't dry out, become brittle, or break off, so it lasts longer while easily accommodating fine adjustments for a perfect fit.

Alternative materials used on the bottom of the mute create varying sound characteristics for special effect, giving musicians the freedom of artistic expression. Multi-propose all-aluminum mutes provide a bright muted sound.

It has very little back pressure.

A MUST for all serious performers!

Denis Wick practice mutes are perhaps the best teaching aid ever invented. Not only do they fulfill the need for the IN TUNE painless practice, so essential in the development of every young player and an indispensable 'hotel mute' for the professional, but they also possible an enormous improvement in tone quality using the entire vital capacity as a vibrating air column by opening the throat spaces through playing loudly in the low register.

Needing to practice at odd times and in odd places over the years (and the absence of a suitable mute) was the reason Trevor Bremner designed the sshhmute. In development over several years in his New Plymouth workshop, the sshhmute is at long last in full commercial production and has been successfully launched to answer a market need for an effective mute in a price range to suit budding musicians and professionals alike. The sshhmute is made from lightweight, yet hard-wearing, ABS plastic with no parts to break or fall off and it is sold in a convenient soft fabric carry bag. Perhaps one of the primary benefits of the sshhmute design is the very small amount of back-pressure it creates. This allows for better air supply, while still opening and developing the throat muscles. The mute also remains in tune and faithfully accurate throughout the entire range.
The Softone Mute for Brass - Trumpet
Whether you're practicing or performing, Softone mutes improve sound quality and create a variety of tones for trumpet, tenor trombone, and bass trombone. Made of soft, non-toxic neoprene, Softone mutes are lightweight and easy to use. They won't stain or scratch your bell, and they fold up easily for storage. Can be used as a practice or bucket mute.
