Following the huge success of the Steven Mead euphonium travel mute, Denis Wick is pleased to launch the version for baritone. This mute is perfect for the busy player who needs a mute that stores easily within the bell of the baritone without protruding and fits easily in gig-bags and cases. By storing it in the bell it actually strengthens the instrument from the inside, thus helping protect it from knocks when stored in the gig-bag. It is free-blowing and resonant, but very soft indeed, making it perfect for both warming-up and for serious practice. The response is very even from pedal tones to the top of the range. It has excellent intonation in every register and is the most in-tune compact mute available.
You will not disturb the neighbours when practising with this Denis Wick Baritone Travel Mute! It is finished with an internal cork damper and has thick high-quality neoprene pads that give a secure grip and dampen the sound to a barely audible tone. It emits approximately 5db less sound than comparable practice and ‘silent’ mutes. It is perfect for near-silent practice at home, for use in hotel rooms or for quietly warming-up without disturbing fellow musicians
