I think the straight mute is fantastic. It plays so well in tune and with a wide open blow, but remarkably, has a nice buzzy sound at all dynamics and in all registers. It has good response, and can play plenty loud. … I am considering it my “go-to” straight mute.
This mute sounds GREAT. The adjustable feature gives it a wide variety of different sounds from tight to open.
Soulo Cup is absolutely amazing! It’s the best cup I have ever played in my entire life. I love the sound and feel.
