Manufacturer’s description:

‘A copper-bottomed version of the world’s favourite trumpet mute! Since it was first designed in 1968 the Wick trumpet straight mute has given trumpet players exactly what they need: a mute perfectly in tune in all registers, a great feel which doesn’t affect the ‘blow’ of the instrument, and the ability to produce a searing fortissimo in orchestral tuttis.

‘The copper-bottomed model is heavier than the standard aluminium model, providing a slightly warmer tone with great carrying power. Indeed, this premium version of a much-loved classic is preferred by many top recording artists.’

Straight mutes are by far the most widely used mutes for brass. They are cone-shaped with three narrow corks to hold them in the bell. Sound emerges from the gaps between the corks. Straight mutes generally reduce low frequencies and accentuate high, giving a more nasal, reedy sound. Aluminium straight mutes have a brighter sound than those made of softer materials like plastic, fibre or wood.
