Clary Woodmutes Cup Mute
Clary Woodmutes are handmade from domestic and exotic hardwood. They are finished with shellac and buffed and waxed to make them pretty and shiny. The inside is finished with a protective-coating of mineral oil.
All mutes come with an attractive handmade black velvet bag!
- The Bobby K Adjustable Cup Mute - An eye-catching and extremely-versatile cup mute. The Bobby K cup is made from dense hardwood (hard maple and purpleheart) which offers a brighter, but very-resonant sound. It plays in-tune and offers minimal resistance.
The Kramer Adjustable Cup Mute - A visually-striking and excellent-playing cup mute. The Kramer cup (with the same basic design as the S.G.C.) is in-tune and offers minimal resistance. This adjustable cup is made of sapele and cherry, with the cup portion alone containing sixty individual wood segments.
The S.G.C. Adjustable Cup Mute - An excellent-playing cup mute. The S.G.C. is in-tune, and plays with minimal resistance. This adjustable cup is made of cherry and padauk, with the cup portion alone containing sixty individual wood segments.
Clary Woodmutes fit both Bb and C Trumpets. They can be easily used without cork modification in standard and large-bell trumpets.
The mutes play extremely-well in tune and have a great response in all ranges of the instrument. They have both an amazing soft voice and the ability to cut when pushed. They are unique-looking, and will usually attract attention from your fellow musicians!
The corks are constructed of two laminated layers: cork and foam. This cork construction allows easy insertion of the mute and ensures that the mute will not fall out during a performance.
Although they are made from wood, the mutes are lightweight, the straight mutes weighing in at approximately 80 grams (about 3 oz.) and the cup mutes at about 125 grams (4.5 oz). They are strong and will take the abuse of being shoved into a mute bag night after night.
