Humes and Berg Straight Aluminum Mute for Trumpets/Trombones

This is a professional aluminum mute and is the most popular seller. The less expensive, but very popular cardboard models are available as well. Click on the link. 

The straight mute is the brass standard. The straight mute produces sort of a stuffy sound when made from cardboard and a brighter sound when made from aluminum like this one. (Follow this link for cardboard mutes). This mute allows you to stay in tune at all registers and creates precise and crisp muted sound for back-up and solos.

Start with this one as your first professional mute. As you get older and play with more pros, you will find that these old guys still have their originally purchased aluminum mutes, dents and all. Having an old dented, tarnished aluminum mute that you see with the experienced players is like being the price of entry of a true pro. Old tools, old briefcases, old mutes...every profession has its marks. So get your aluminum mutes as fast as possible so you can start to beat them up. Use it for most every application. When you walk into the room, your presence will be felt.

Willie Berg invented the stonelined brass mute. His work with the Glenn Miller orchestra started in 1930's and 1940's to help Glenn blend the brass section into a more musical sound. It was Glenn Miller who persuaded the US Armed forces to allow Willie Berg to stay home and manufacture stonelined mutes for all of the brass bands in the US armed forces. Willie Berg's contribution to the war effort allowed bands throughout the world to entertain troops with that big band sound we all grew to love. His company has been making them since and the stonelined mutes are the industry standard today.

This mute is in every brassmans bag. Humes and Berg invented the stonelined mute. With that invention, they perfected the mute entirely.
