Manufactured by the Dutchman Robin van Gemert, a professional horn player in the Aachen Opera, Germany, Horn-Crafts has developed an innovative horn mute line that offers the discriminating player 3 choices of resistance. Horn-Crafts mutes were carefully tested by numerous professional players among the European music scene to develop the models Sylva, Betula, and Khaya. A careful balance of resistance and tone color is achieved through matching the different tapers to the woods used. The result is a choice for the horn player to decide which mute will work best for the specific job at hand. 

Horn-Crafts mutes start with parts cut 100% the same way using state of the art laser cutting technologies. Once the parts are precisely cut, the mutes are manufactured using great care and attention to detail. The tuning slide has a comfortable feel, and holds its place. The mutes offer the player incredible performance in all registers. Horn-Crafts mutes for horn feature a durable viscous rope for easy/quick handling, laser engraved logos for authenticity, and a beautiful wax based finish to the wood for long lasting beauty. Made by hand in the Netherlands.
