Denis Wick Trumpet Fibre Straight Mute

Made with a seamless construction and a wooden base for extra resonance, this fibre straight mute from Dennis Wick packs pro credentials and sound into a student price. It’s super lightweight and because of its conical fibre construction, it shouldn’t suffer from any dings or dents. The corks have also been contoured to avoid ‘chipping’ – a rarity at this price point.

Attached to the house horn, we found it easy to play in any part of the range with good intonation. It is definitely more mellow than similarly spec’d aluminium or metal mutes and has a clean, round sound, particularly at the top end. We really liked this sweet side to it’s character. What it doesn’t have is a rawness and a hard, gritty edge to it’s sound, as when you do it still retains that inherent warmth.

We reckon that this fibre mute would work really well in an ensemble situation, but can’t imagine it behind a full big band brass section. An excellent product, with the Denis Wick stamp of quality written all over it. Every horn should have one! For more go to www.deniswick.com
