Since this mute is designed not to sound like other straight mutes, wouldn't blending with other muted trombones be a problem?

 Sandy was commenting on the E-mute which is the Best Brass variant of the Yamaha Silent Brass. As for your question, yes the straight mute may have a problem blending with other muted trombones. No single mute is best for every situation. The Best Brass appears to be for instances when you need to stick out, or have a recognizable timbre.

Mine came in the mail today...wow!  A compact little thang! I'll post pics and give a review, but so far, I'm impressed with just the size. It's not much bigger than the regular Best Brass mute. However, this practice mute is for tenor trombone and flugelhorn (alto trombone) only. Does not fit a bass bone. I'm sure if this product is successful, mutes for other instruments will follow soon.  Clever Below are comparison pics: L to R...bass bone Best Brass, tenor bone Best Brass, tenor/flugel/alto Best Brass E-Mute, regular Silent Brass mute.

The EMute comes with a set of ear buds, and requires 2 AAA batteries.

hi, Sandy,

do you think the E brass is quieter than the best brass?
 i have both the best brass and silent brass, found that the silent brass is a lot quieter than the best brass. i am just curious, is the e-brass making any improve ments?  besides, is it heavy? does it shift the balance of the trombone , as compared to the silent brass mute?

thx in advance!

Both eBrass and Warm Up are two superb products that Shinji Hamanaga designed.

Warm Up is one of the most widely used mutes with players smiling on all continents.

eBrass is superb mute that is similar in concept to that of Yamaha's Silent Brass.

For the player that want's the electronics this is surely a winner. And too boot there is special discount pricing on these throughout August at slidebone.com
