Oak Barrel Straight Mute
Oak Barrel Straight Mute - Made from a genuine Kentucky distillery bourbon barrel. In fact, you can still smell the faint aroma of Kentucky bourbon inside the mute.
This mute is not only a great conversation piece (and possibly a collectors item), but it has an amazing sound, plays superbly in-tune with minimal resistance, and facilitates easy articulation in the upper-register.
The Oak Barrel Straight mute comes in two configurations:
(1) for Bb and C trumpet; and
(2) fine-tuned just for C trumpet
The Bb/C mute is perfect for someone who plays mostly Bb and sometimes plays C.
The C mute is made for those who specialize in C trumpet, and for those Bb trumpets that have a narrow bell throat. This mute dials in the intonation for C trumpets (and other trumpets with a narrow bell throat).
With the Bb/C mute, you have the further option of (1) regular corks (for standard bell throats - e.g., Bach, Yamaha); or (2) tall corks (for larger bell throats - e.g. Adams A4, Schilke X3, Wild Thing).
Weight is about 3 oz (80 g).
