Made from high purity spun aluminum, these handmade mutes blend perfectly, provide unmatched brilliance and projection, and have excellent intonation. Denis Wick offers the most comprehensive line of straight mutes available.
The reason for the success of this Denis Wick mute lies partly in the brilliance of the design and partly in the care and precision of the manufacture. The design has created a very open mute, giving a full sound and avoiding the problem of sharpness of pitch encountered in many mutes. The hand-spun aluminium is both light and extremely resonant. Other manufacturing techniques produce mutes which are not as hard. Denis Wick mutes are hand-crafted to produce a mute where the metal is ‘work-hardened’ making it both light and very resonant. This makes it free-blowing and extremely responsive and the choice of the most demanding musicians.
Real cork is used to produce a snug fit in the bell of the instrument.
