Product details

Suitable for

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.

The slightly bigger brother of the world famous Denis Wick trumpet straight mute. Since it was first designed in 1968 the design has become the byword for quality and has become the standard bench mark mute. The mute 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 as well as controlled pianissimo.

The reason for the success of this Denis Wick mute lies partly in the brilliance of the design and partly in the care and precision of the manufacture. The design has created a very open mute, giving a full sound and avoiding the problem of sharpness of pitch encountered in many mutes. The hand-spun aluminium is both light and extremely resonant. Other manufacturing techniques produce mutes which are not as hard. Denis Wick mutes are hand-crafted to produce a mute where the metal is ‘work-hardened’ making it both light and very resonant. This makes it free-blowing and extremely responsive and the choice of the most demanding musicians.

Real cork is used to produce a snug fit in the bell of the instrument.
