Soulo Mute’s Copper-bottom trumpet Straight Mute is undeniably the best trumpet straight mute on the market. It is endorsed by some of the biggest trumpet pros like Wayne Bergeron, symphonies and philharmonies around the world. Its success is largely due to the vast improvements on the typical straight mute issues, while preserving the traditional trumpet straight mute sound.
Let’s take the sound first. Soulo Mute uses the highest quality Aluminum and Copper in order to achieve the most brilliant straight mute sound that classical musicians need.
Second, unlike all other copper mutes, Soulo Straight Mute is lightweight, because it only uses copper where it actually matters. The top part of the mute is made of light weight aluminum, thus making the entire mute lighter. In fact this is the lightest copper trumpet straight mute on the market!
Third, Soulo Straight Mute will never fall out of the bell! It uses unique neoprene composite corks, which “lock” the mute inside the bell.
Perhaps most importantly, Soulo Trumpet Straight mute improved on two very important issues associated with most mutes – pitch and playability. Its ground-breaking aerodynamic shape delivers a perfect pitch and a free-blowing experience. Soulo Mute’s patented shape allows the air to naturally flow in and outside of the mute, undisturbed by a crimp or any other barrier. On the inside, the air flows into a perfect hemisphere, never hitting a flat surface, thereby not altering the pitch. Because of its innovative qualities, Soulo trumpet straight mute received a patent by the USPTO.
