Humes & Berg 160 Trombone Velvet-Tone (Bucket) Mute


The Humes & Berg 160 Trombone Velvet-Tone (Bucket) Mute is a popular mute used by trombonists to achieve a unique and warm sound. It is commonly referred to as a “bucket” mute due to its shape, which resembles a small bucket. The Velvet-Tone mute is made of high-quality materials and is designed to fit securely over the bell of the trombone. It is lined with a layer of velvet fabric on the inside, which helps to dampen the sound and produce a mellow and velvety tone.

The Humes & Berg 160 is known for its excellent intonation and response, making it a popular choice among trombonists looking to add a distinctive sound to their playing. One of the most classic mutes of all time. The Humes & Berg has been the go-to Bucket Mute for decades and it has been used by professional Trombonists since the glory days of the Big Bands, such as Ellington and Basie, through to current-day users at all levels.
