Manufacturer’s description:

‘Poor intonation and projection have long been problems associated with extending tube mutes. Wick has eradicated these problems through a new design that creates a change in color without muffling the sound. Whether the stem is in, extended, or removed, these mutes produce a crisp, focused sound that projects easily.’

Replacement cork: contact showroom.

Extending tube ('ET') mutes, also known as harmon mutes (after their first producer Paddy Harmon) originated in the Chicago ballrooms of the 1920s, and make a hallmark 'wah-wah' jazz sound exemplified in the performances of Miles Davis. A cork collar seals the gap between mute and bell, directing the sound through the mute's body which has an adjustable 'stem' (an 'extending tube' with a small cup on the end of it) to further vary the tone colours that can be achieved. ET mutes are made of metal and have varying shapes, including the bulbous so-called 'bubble' mute.
