While brass players have always had practice mutes, they were always tough to play with and sounded horrible. Yamaha then came out with a system that allowed players to plug headphones into the mute so we could hear this amazing sound while those around us couldn’t hear much at all. It was revolutionary for people who lived in apartments, had young children or wanted to warm up backstage. The Yamaha Silent Brass was a big success.
There have been two major upgrades to the original design. First, it’s much lighter than the original and much smaller so the mute fits inside of your bell, which means you can pack it in your case without removing the mute. Second and most importantly, the sound amplification technology has been totally reimagined. A new technology called “Brass Resonance Modeling” recreates the full, open sound of the horn as if you didn’t have a mute in at all.
With the mute in your instrument, it sounds pretty much like a practice mute to someone else in the room with you. Through headphones the sound from the new silent brass system is rich and satisfying. Now you can experience the full sound of your trumpet without disturbing anybody.
