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.
Practise mutes have a similar conical design to straight mutes but with a solid cork bell seal to block off the sound. Air flow is greatly reduced and escapes almost silently through a small hole in the body of the mute. They are used for warming up and practising without disturbing the peace.
