Denis Wick DW5504C Bb Trumpet / Bb Cornet Straight Mute
Made from high purity spun aluminum, these handmade mutes blend perfectly, provide unmatched brilliance and projection, and have excellent intonation.
Denis Wick mutes have set the standard for tone and intonation for many years. They bring an amazing range of tone colours to any brass section and are essential for the performance of a huge range of music, from classical composers such as Mahler and Shostakovich to film scores, avant-garde music, big bands and small group jazz.
A copper-bottomed version of the world’s favourite trumpet mute! Since the DW5504 was first designed in 1968 it has given trumpet players exactly what they need: a mute which is perfectly in tune in all registers, a great feel which doesn’t affect the ‘blow’ of the instrument, and the ability to produce a searing fortissimo in orchestral tuttis. This copper-bottomed version is heavier than the regular aluminium style, and provides a slightly warmer tone with the great carrying power. This version is preferred by many top recording artists. A premium version of a much-loved classic mute.
