Yamaha’s next generation SILENT Brass delivers greater playing enjoyment, anytime, anywhere. The new SILENT Brass consists of a smaller, lighter, free blowing Pickup Mute™, and the Personal Studio™, which features Yamaha’s exclusive Brass Resonance Modeling™. Used together, the two deliver the natural acoustic tone you hear when playing without a mute, making it feel as though you are playing mute free.
Lightweight and Compact - Pickup Mute
Significantly smaller and lighter than previous versions, the mute offers superior muting performance, delivers excellent intonation in all ranges, and natural playability.
Yamaha’s proprietary technology produces a truer tone without a mute by adding the characteristics of the acoustic environment through which the sound travels from the horn to the player’s ears.
Sound without Brass Resonance Modeling Sound with Brass Resonance Modeling
It is recommended to listen to the sound with headphones or earphones.
The SILENT Brass features Yamaha’s unique technology, “Brass Resonance Modeling” which uses the modeling of non-muted brass instruments to correct your instrument’s tone when the Pickup Mute is in place. With a combination of a Personal Studio STX and a Pickup Mute, the resulting sound is so realistic, it’s hard to tell whether the instrument is muted, or not.
