The Wilkins Wood-Tone Mute
The Wilkins Wood-Tone Mute - An extremely fun-to-play mute that is a nod to the vintage solo-tone. The Wood-Tone is resonant, plays in-tune, and offers minimal resistance.
The mute is named after one of my former band directors, Jay Wilkins, who actually gave me my first solo-tone mute. The Wood-Tone is made from segments of purpleheart, padauk, mahogany, sapele, walnut, and yellowheart.
Fits Bb and C trumpets. Weight is about 5 oz (150 g).
