In development over several years in New Zealand, the sshhmute is at long last in full commercial production and has been successfully launched to answer a market need for an effective mute in a price range to suit budding musicians and professionals alike. The sshhmute is made from lightweight, yet hard-wearing, ABS plastic with no parts to break or fall off and it is sold in a convenient soft fabric carry bag. Perhaps one of the primary benefits of the sshhmute design is the very small amount of back-pressure it creates. This allows for better air supply, while still opening and developing the throat muscles. The mute also remains in tune and faithfully accurate throughout the entire range.
Made from durable, lightweight, high quality ABS, the sshhmute Practice Mute is perfect for brass players to play when their surroundings make it inconvenient.
Whether it’s warming up before going on stage, practising in your bedroom, or playing in the school hallway, the sshhmute is the perfect choice.
This one-of-a-kind brass practice mute has almost no back-pressure and true tuning consistency throughout the range of the instrument... that's why the sshhmute is the #1 choice for some of the world's top brass players including:
James Morrison (internationally acclaimed jazz artist)
Joseph Alessi (Principal Trombone - New York Philharmonic)
David Elton (Principal Trumpet - London Symphony Orchestra), and acclaimed ensembles such as;
The Canadian Brass, Foden's Band, Brassband Willebroek, and Wellington Brass.
The shhmute Flugelhorn Practice Mute is suitable for most models of flugelhorn.
