Should this be in the Classifieds?  Honest question.

It's not posted by the seller, and is news about an accessory that has been off the market for awhile.  Gets my vote for staying right here.

I was bummed that folks who tried my older model immediately wanted one, and I couldn't give a place to order.

This is good news!

I'm torn about this one.  He is  the seller, but this is more of an announcement.  I'll defer to Walt (Board Moderator).

Thanks for catching that.

I should have looked at the ID more carefully. I had read an ID I knew (tbonedude89) rather than what was there.

Nice timing for this mute coming back... considering it was just mentioned in another lengthy bucket mute thread :)

He's also posted a Classified Ad.  With a demo.

Looks neat.

We can discuss the mute here.  Apparently no prices are available anywhere.

Trombone89, can you modify your Classified with some approximate prices for tenor and bass trombone?

We used these in the Jazz Ambassadors for a while, but the clips kept snapping off.  They sounded nice but didn't survive in a mute bag with other mutes.

They show up on the "About" tab on the facebook link.

I had seen reports like this, and pack that mute pretty carefully.  But if I had to travel as much as the Jazz Ambassadors... I don't know if packing would help.

Wonder if trombone89 includes this under "New and Improved?"  Maybe the clips are less fragile now?

How did YOU like the timbre of the mute, esp. relative to the H&B "industry standard?"

To be specific this new model is made with a much stronger plastic.

I purchased one of these new ones. I've used the original EZ for some time and no problems with broken tabs. Then it was no longer available for whatever reasons.

This new version is excellent - and also available in different bell diameter sizes. It was sent quickly and well packed. When I have a chance I'll compare to the original and take photos of both side by side.

Glad to have a backup of this nice mute and thanks for bringing it back to the market.

Me too, Joe. I just received mine last week and it looks pretty sturdy. Sadly, I don't have an original, as, mine are up in that grand, bucket-mute-heaven, somewhere or maybe out in a local landfill. >:(

The EZ was always my favorite bucket mute, even though I went through two of the "original's".

They were always easy to handle and pretty much had a similar sound to the H&B Bucket.

Mine arrived very promptly from CA and, like Joe's, came well packed in the shipping box. They seem like a good company to do trombone-business with, in my opinion! Good!
