Patented travel mute for the professional tuba player. He is a concert and practice mute in one. This mute is dismantled and thus easy to carry in the tuba. This mute has been developed for and with Prof. Wilfried Brandstötter of the “MNOZIL BRASS”. Innovations in 2012 include the wooden rings with built-in magnets. That is why the mute has now lighter waight (starting from 1,2 kg), is easier to use and has a wider range of tones than the old model. Furthermore this model has a few more new items: a smooth foam ring for practice, a convoluted foam ring for concerts and 3 brackets with 2 different distances. Thus, one can individually achieve the desired tone.
