Denis Wick 5504 Trumpet/Cornet Straight Mute

The world's favourite trumpet mute! This is perhaps the most successful, and most copied trumpet mute ever. Since it was first designed in 1968 it has given trumpet players exactly what they need: a mute which is perfectly in tune in all registers, a great feel which doesn't effect the 'blow' of the instrument, and the ability to produce a searing fortissimo in orchestral tuttis.

The reason for the success of this Denis Wick mute lies partly in the brilliance of the design and partly in the care and precision of the manufacture. The design has created a very open mute, bigger than all its predecessors, giving a full sound and avoiding the problem of sharpness of pitch encountered in many trumpet mutes.

The hand-spun aluminium is both light and extremely resonant. Other manufacturing techniques produce mutes which are not as hard. Our hand-crafting produce a mute where the metal is 'work-hardened' making it both light and very resonant. This makes it free-blowing and extremely responsive and the choice of the most demanding musicians.

Real cork is used to produce a snug fit in the bell of the instrument. We are proud that this mute is used by thousands of musicians all over the world and yet also represents incredible value. This is one of the most important pieces of equipment a trumpet-player will ever purchase, but is available at an incredibly reasonable price.

"The iconic mute for a generation of performers - and one that has passed the test of time. Superbly crafted and engineered (they all look and sound alike), it has been seen on major contest stages on every continent of the globe. The mute produces a clear, brilliant sound that allows for a wide dynamic range with secure intonation. No wonder so many have been sold. For cornets in particular, having a complete set of quality homogenous mutes is a must - and worth their weight in gold. Buy cheap and nasty and you will surely sound the same. And as long as the band secretary can keep an up to date inventory (cornet mutes gp AWOL from bandrooms more often than Ronnie Biggs over Wandsworth prison wall) they are also well worth the investment too." 4BarsRest

Denis Wick 5504B Trumpet/Cornet Straight Mute with Brass Bottom

Heavier than the regular aluminium version this mute produces a more brilliant sound. Very useful for its wonderful projection in the symphony orchestra, it produces a harder-edged sound in fortissimos than the regular aluminium mute. Also great for pit playing (both in operas and musicals) and in big bands if a strident muted sound is needed. It has all the all-round versatility of the DW5504 but with extra punch.

"The Denis Wick brass-bottomed mute is a versatile straight mute perfectly suited to both jazz and orchestral work. Perfect intonation and a brilliant sound distinguish this mute from its competitors." Byron Wallen

This mute uses the inner part of the 5531 adjustable cup mute. When it was discovered that this can give a good muted sound even at pp levels - metal mutes usually sound too 'open' at this dynamic- it was decided to sell the inner section separately as a pp mute, in an anodised finish.
