The Soulo Mute is the newest invention in the mute world. Soulo Mute resembles the sound of several different mutes. Its unique sound and attributes however put it in a category of its own. If you want a cool, new, soulful sound to stand out from the rest, Soulo Mute is for you. It's fun to play, adjustable and attaches easily to the end of the bell, unlike other mutes that use clips. Handcrafted and personally tested by a professional trumpet player, Soulo Mute has been widely accepted by horn players from all music backgrounds.
-When using the mute you will notice little or no back pressure
-It is lightweight, just 2.2 oz /62g
-It easily attaches to the bell
-Consistent pitch in all registers
-Adjusts smoothly to allow a more open or closed tone
-Made in the U.S.A.
Soulo was chosen because everyone agreed that this mute has an abundance of soulfulness and it is perfect for soloing. Not to mention it also looks like Darth Vadar, Hans "Solo"'s nemesis from Star Wars.
Soulo Mute is currently being sold on 4 continents; North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Customers are sharing their experience in using it in multiple settings - as a bucket, cup, practice mute, and also for jazz and classical repertoire. The list keep growing with more trumpeters trying the mute.

The Soula mute is a very mellow mute, which fits a nice niche: Not as nasal as a Harmon mute (stem in), a bit louder than a Harmon (stem out), not as quack-y as a cup mute. Beautiful for jazz ballads where a lush, warm, full tone is desired. Perhaps a bit pricey, but overall a good value.
