Bremner 'SshhMute' Trumpet/Cornet Practice Mute
All three Monsters are in love with this practice mute, endorse it wholeheartedly, and use it all the time. It is an essential tool for trumpet players at every level.
Here's why the Sshhmute is the best practice mute you can buy:
• Very quiet. Practice with confidence backstage, in apartments, dorms, in the pit, hotels, outdoor parks, when everybody is asleep, in airports, on planes!
• Free-blowing. Best feel and intonation (in all registers) of any practice mute we have tried, and we have pretty much tried them all.
• Lightweight. Durable. Made from ABS plastic.
• Comes with a convenient soft fabric carry bag.
• Creates only a very small amount of back-pressure compared to other practice mutes.
• Helps to open and develop the throat muscles.
Bremner Music (Shhmute) is another small company like Monster Oil, run by these two:
This is the amazing Trevor and Betty Bremner. They were our next-door booth-neighbors at Midwest 2014 (our first year). That's not why we love their products, but it is how we know what fantastic people they are.
