For flugelhorn or alto trombone. The Yamaha Silent Brass System allows the performer to play their instrument without disturbing those around them. The system includes a set of mini-headphones, a practice mute (redesigned for 2014), and a Personal Studioamplifier module (also redesigned for 2014). The player plugs the mute and the headphones into the module and then plays. A microphone in the mute picks up the player's own sound and sends it to the amplifier where it is "filled in" and sent to the headphones. This third generation system features Brass Resonance Modeling for an even more realistic sound. Features:
Pickup Mute: The Pickup Mute combines a high-performance mute with an internal microphone to pickup sound. Significantly smaller and lighter than previous versions, the mute offers superior muting performance, delivers excellent intonation over a wide pitch range, and natural playability. A new compact design now lets you put your instrument in its case with the mute in the bell. Please note that the mute may not fit some instruments with significantly different bell shapes or bell diameters. Please check before purchasing.
Brass Resonance Modeling: The SILENT Brass features Yamaha’s proprietary technology, which uses the modeling of non-muted brass instruments to correct your instrument’s tone when the Pickup Mute is in place. The resulting sound is so realistic, it’s hard to tell whether the instrument is muted, or not.
Personal Studio: Connect the output from an audio player, smartphone, etc. to the AUX IN jack on the Personal Studio™ and enjoy playing along with your favorite recordings or minus one practice aids. The PHONES jack can also be used as an output jack for recording what you play. * Do not use the AUX IN jack when using the PHONES jack as an output jack.
