This trumpet practice mute from FAXX allows you to lower your volume without muffling your tone. The mute is lightweight, easy blowing, and designed to reduce volume by up to 80% without sacrificing intonation. Durably manufactured in the USA, this mute is small enough to be stored inside the bell of the trumpet while in the case for the traveling musician. It's is a great accessory for anyone that needs to get their practice time in, but in a quiet manner while doing so! The Faxx mute is comparable to the design of the Best Brass mutes from Japan.
