Manufacturer’s description:

‘A brass-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 brass-bottomed model is heavier than the standard aluminium model, providing a brighter tone that projects with a more cutting sound in an orchestra. Indeed, this version is preferred by many top orchestral players.’

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.
