The original electronic practice mute for brass is updated for the next generation. The mute is now lighter and stores inside a fixed horn bell. Includes battery powered amplification box and earphones, so you can easily hear yourself and you won't tire from over blowing. Input jacks for play along CDs. Also available as a mute only, without the electronics, at $140, model PM-3X.
Brass instruments can be loud, but Yamaha devised a way for horn players to practice while listening to hi-fidelity sound that is only audible to the performer. The innovative, award-winning SILENT Brass systems provide musicians with the ultimate practice tool, ideal for use in any silent practice or warm-up situation. The Yamaha SB3XC is designed for French horn.
The popular SILENT Brass systems have evolved through innovative advances in sound technology and construction. The systems offer a more comfortable and realistic experience than ever before. The smaller, lightweight design of the new pickup mute offers outstanding sound reduction and provides a natural playing feel, stable pitch and overall retention of the instrument’s basic playing characteristics.
The mute features Brass Resonance Modeling, a leading-edge technology that delivers superior and realistic brass instrument sound. Another system component, the compact Personal Studio unit, includes a headphone jack and allows for easy attachment of an external audio player in order to practice with prerecorded material. SILENT Brass systems can also enhance recordings and provide live sound reinforcement.
