It fits nicely in my Cecilio pocket trumpet, which also has this exact mute. Obviously, the sound is somewhat distorted by the amplifier, but it has been very useful for practicing. You are going to love it, I hope!
This shouldn't be a problem. As a result of its shape, this silencer can be fitted to various types of trumpets and cornets.
A trumpet has a smaller bell than this, so this is designed for it. It is unlikely that this would work in the Rather than a trumpet mute, consider buying a trombone mute.
The silencer I have in front of me I do not sell. Sorry about that. A friend of mine has one and I find it to be very helpful
Selected User Reviews For Honbay Lightweight Aluminum Practice Trumpet Mute Silencer for Jazz
It was only after I put the mute on and realized that what I thought I was playing in Bb I was actually playing in B that I realized that mine does (at least mine does) distort pitch and makes I gave it four stars and all this being said. This works, I mean, it's like half the decibel range, so I can practice at night without being worried about someone hiring a hitman to kill my bird. On the plus side, I also took the pitch shift as an opportunity. This is a Bb trumpet, for real. The trumpet has a B tone if the mute is on. This means I can now practice soloing in C minor and C# minor using the same backing track. My knowledge of the matter is limited. $10 was all it cost and I use it on a regular basis. Overall, I think it is a good product. However, if you want to be sure the pitch will not change, then you should spend more money.
Take a moment to choose a practice mute that is of higher quality I am not going to waste my money on this one. This is so small that the airflow is blocked when it is inserted into the bell of my Bb trumpet. It has a negative impact on intonation as well.
In many reviews, it is stated that Unlike the standard mute, this one is not muted The practice mute is for practice only. I bought a house for my neighbors and they are grateful. Even though it removes my trumpet overall, it does provide a bit of resistance to airflow, which I find great for practice since when I remove it, I have more volume and flow than when I have it on. Although you don't need to have one in a big house, it is useful nonetheless This causes my trumpet to produce horrible noises when I play it.
As they aged, this was only made I don't know what it is, but I just love the bright tone I get from this cheap little mute. By covering the bell, I reduce the volume significantly and cause intonation issues. However, I've managed to deal with these issues readily. I get what I want out of a jazzy straight mute when using it.
Worked for me. The practice mute is definitely a good idea. My estimate is that it doesn't quite cut the sound in half, but it does pretty close. There's something wrong with the timbre of the sound because of the practice mute. I don't find the texture change to be very pleasing. The sound becomes more blaring as a result- As a result, the attack is greatly reduced. Although it only costs ten dollars, maybe your neighbors will be satisfied. Perhaps Silent Brass (I believe Yamaha is the manufacturer) would be a good choice for you. Besides that, everything is fine here.
No matter how hard I tried, the trumpet mute never seemed to fit right. Our only option was to put up with it since it was so cheap. One of the cork pieces has fallen off and it's now basically useless (after 6 months of usage). Even if it could be fixed, it wouldn't be worth the trouble.
My favorite thing about it is that I can practice and play jazz. If you are going to use this for practice, do not buy it. This device is convenient because it is relatively small so that it can be carried easily. The only thing I hoped was that it would calm the sound enough that my family wouldn't When buying the mute, make sure you choose wisely, as it does not cancel out all sounds on your computer. This is a wonderful Jazz mute all around.
In the process of getting them, I bought a second hand trumpet. I wanted my toddler to be able to play with me, so I ordered a trumpet with a second hand trumpet at the same time. My jaw dropped when I saw him. In a sense, it is quite literal. We needed something so that he wouldn't be able to sneak up on us and give us tinnitus with just his two or three notes. There is no need to do that anymore. Tooting away to his heart's content without causing anyone else's hearing to be impaired is fine for him. I've noticed that it rattles a little as he plays and that the cork gets a bit more moist/warm when he does. This problem goes away if you screw it in a little tighter. It would have gotten a star if they did that, but this was an excellent.
