Clary Oak Barrel Straight Mute - Made from a genuine Kentucky distillery bourbon barrel.  In fact, you can still smell the faint aroma of Kentucky bourbon inside the mute.

This mute is not only a great conversation piece (and possibly a collectors item), but it has an amazing sound, plays superbly in-tune with minimal resistance, and facilitates easy articulation in the upper-register. 

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!

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.
