New from Denis Wick - a new compact, ultra-light in-bell mute for the trombone. This mute is perfect for the busy player who needs a mute that stores easily within the bell of the trombone without protruding and fits easily in gig-bags and cases. By storing it in the bell it actually strengthens the instrument from the inside, thus helping protect it from knocks when stored in the gig-bag. 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.
