    Euphonium Practice/SM Travel Mute, Compact

    For all upright-bell euphoniums this travel mute features a compact design that fits flush with the bell flare, allowing it to be kept in the bell when the horn is packed away in the case.

    Denis Wick is pleased to introduce a new compact, ultra-light in-bell mute for the euphonium. Weighing only 200 grams, this mute is perfect for the busy player who needs a mute that stores easily within the bell of the euphonium without protruding and fits easily in gig-bags and cases. It is free-blowing and resonant, but very soft indeed, making it perfect for both warming-up and for serious practice. The response is very even from pedal tones to the top of the range. It has excellent intonation in every register and is the most in-tune compact mute available.

    You will not disturb the neighbours when practising with this mute! It is finished with an internal cork damper and has thick high-quality neoprene pads that give a secure grip and dampen the sound to a barely audible tone. It emits approximately 5db less sound than comparable practice and `silent' mutes. It is perfect for near-silent practice at home, for use in hotel rooms or for quietly warming-up without disturbing fellow musicians.

    A leather strap is fixed to the top of the mute for easy insertion and removal, and this hand-spun mute is finished to the highest quality.

    Developed with Steven Mead, the new travel mute sets a new standard for compact in-bell mutes. - the manufacturer
