Denis Wick DW5531 adjustable cup mutes are among the most versatile cup mutes available on the market today. Whether they are used in solo work, section playing, or with a microphone, the adjustable cup allows the player to create a myriad of sounds without affecting intonation. Made from high quality aluminum, this mute is a must for every brass player.
Through careful design, Denis Wick has created the DW5526 practice mute that stops nearly all sound while retaining a stable pitch, accurate intonation and the ideal level of resistance. Whether they are being used in teaching or practicing, Wick practice mutes can bring the sound to the edge of silence.
The Denis Wick DW5504 straight mute design has created a very open mute, bigger than all its predecessors, giving a full sound and avoiding the problem of sharpness of pitch encountered in many trumpet mutes. Other manufacturing techniques produce mutes which are not as hard. Our hand-crafting 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.
