Needing to practice at odd times and in odd places over the years (and the absence of a suitable mute) was the reason Trevor Bremner designed the sshhmute. In development over several years in his New Plymouth workshop, the sshhmute is at long last in full commercial production and has been successfully launched to answer a market need for an effective mute for brass instruments in a price range to suit budding musicians and professionals alike.
The unique design creates minimal back-pressure, which helps the throat muscles to achieve better control, provides better air supply and flow, while being in tune and accurate throughout the range.
A Few Testimonials
“The Bremner practice mute is an excellent product. I am a trumpet soloist based in the UK but travel all over. The mute works extremely well and I have already used it on a number of occasions just before going on stage where I have needed to be discreet but hear myself back – with better intonation than most practice mutes allow.” - Alison Balsom, Trumpet Soloist
“These are by far the best practice mutes I have ever played. The feel, evenness of the sound throughout the register, intonation and ease of response, is unlike any other mute like this.” - Michael Sachs, Principal Trumpet for The Cleveland Orchestra
