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.

Cup mutes are similar to straight mutes (cone-shaped with three corks) with an added 'cup' facing the bell of the instrument. Some are adjustable, allowing the distance between the cup and the bell to be modified; this model has a fixed cup. They produce a more subdued tone than straight mutes, reducing both lower and higher frequencies, and offer colours much favoured by jazz musicians.
