A good basic fiber cup mute for all tenor trombones with bell sizes up to 8.5 inches in diameter. Features a 6-inch wide cup section. Produces classic cup tone. Best for jazz and dance band work. Lightweight at only 6.4 ounces (0.18 kg). Made in USA by Humes & Berg. NOTE: This mute will fit large 547 bore trombones (Bach 42, Conn 88H, etc), but the sound may not be as full due to the mute's small cup size and tight fit. Over time the cup may actually contact the bell. Large bore players may want to consider model 023114 instead.
