Fun show, which book are you playing? The first book has a couple of exposed, high things, lots of mute changes, dig out your solotone. The second book is bass trombone and tuba, lots of mute changes in there, too. Fortunately, I haven't run across any mutes for tuba in a show book. Yet.

I have the ProTec Liberty practice mute for both tenor and bass. I believe it is the same mute as the Dillon. They make the horn maybe a quarter tone sharp, and can get a little squirrelly in the high register. Since I just use it for pre-gig warmups, that's not a deal breaker for me. Response on the bass bone version is fine, and works well down into the pedal register.

I did Legally Blonde last year, and used my small tenor and bass. Some of the markings to use one horn or another don't make any sense, along the lines of Small Tenor with notes written below the staff. I just used what seemed appropriate to me.

I'd bet they have the newer stuff, and just haven't changed the picture. You could call/email them to make sure.

The Softone is basically a neoprene beret, doesn't silence the horn as much as most practice mutes do.. It gets squirrelly up high, too. Better than nothing, I guess, though. If you have an extra metal straight kicking around, you can recork it with a solid piece all the way around ( like on a Harmon), drill two holes around the rim, and you have a homemade Denis Wick practice mute. All the Renuzit mutes I've seen have been by trumpet players, not sure they'd be big enough for trombone. As long as you don't use any metal, I'm not sure how you'd scratch the bell up with a Renuzit. Personally, I wouldn't care for the smell, and they all smell, even without the part that has the actual scent.

That's why I said "AFAIK." ( As Far As I Know...) they don't tell me everything.

Is the Yamaha 'oil' still made? (... Don't like the new 'lubricant'... Doesn't play well with my saliva or whatever.
Or anything as good as the 'oil'?

Afaik, the only thing different is the name. They've changed the bottle a bit, too.

I've had a chance to try out the Soulo cup with my large bore tenor (882GO). It backs up a little bit in around a G  , but it's better than my H & B 's. It might work better if I play around with the adjustment on the cup, but I didn't have the time to try it out more. It still sounds nice, and even. If I had to play some solo stuff like the Defaye Deux Danses, this would be the mute of choice. It backs up a little bit on my smallbore (897Z), but way less than my drilled H&B's. There's less backup the tighter you make it to the bell. I'm doing Guys and Dolls now, and there's a bunch of low Gs and Abs in Marry The Man that pop out just fine. If I had to come in on a solo entrance with a ppp low G I might worry, but a bit more air makes it work.

Insertion is pretty easy. I've been using it for a couple of shows, and it's easy to grab from the mute rack, due to the extra bit sticking out from the bottom. I like to keep the cup fairly close to the bell, so I have maybe an inch or so sticking out. It stays in well, the corks seem to be a composite cork/rubber material. They slide in well, without noise, and grab on once it's inserted. Sometimes it's actually tough to get it out in a hurry, but that will likely get easier over time.

I did a quick search, Grah, but nothing popped up, so I started a new thread. Glad to hear you like yours!


Jim, never played on a Wick, but my guess would be that the Soulo will sound a bit mellower, being fiber instead of metal.

Never seen a 700 or 900 series trombone. They might use those for trumpets, etc., but I don't pay too much attention to the numbering on those. Don't know

I recently got a Soulo Cup Mute, and am very happy with it. It compares very nicely to my vintage Ray Robinson in response and tuning, and is maybe a teeny bit brighter sounding. Plays much nicer than both of my H&Bs, and it's adjustable, too.

No, they didn't pay me to say that, either, I paid retail.

Thanks, Terry, you're too kind! Happy to be busier than a one-armed wallpaper hanger. Hope you're enjoying your summer!

Hang on to the 2B, the vast majority of first books for shows is easily playable on a straight horn. If you're the only trombone, you'll have an easier time blending with the trumpet on the smaller horn, too. Anything that requires stuff below the staff will work with your Fattachment horn.

Practice until you can't concentrate on what you're doing. Then take a break, and start over. Whether that's the next day or 10 minutes later is up to you.
