Tom Crown, a professional trumpeter for over forty years, many with the Lyric Opera Orchestra of Chicago, produced his first trumpet straight mute in 1968.
The series of mutes for orchestral brass instruments which followed was quickly adopted by orchestras around the globe.
Since 2019 the complete manufacturing process has been carried out at the company’s own modern factory in Chicago.
Tom Crown's ‘Model A’ straight mute is a near copy of the so-called ‘Nonpareil’ (‘unrivalled’) mute patented by the historic New York manufacturer Magosy & Buscher in the 1920s. To read its story click here. It is used by both trumpet and trombone players.
