Ion Balu Straight tunable mutes for Horn
"The modern-day horn straight mute is made of cardboard, aluminum, or a thin wooden veneer. We wish we could tell you what our mutes are made of, but then we would have to "mute" you.
The fundamental difference in a Balu Mute, as compared with your average straight mute, is its ability to produce a clear and responsive, highly-resonant sound, without faulty notes or questionable intonation throughout the whole register.The inside tip protects the mute from becoming deformed by wear and tear, an important aspect in protecting the longevity of the mute. In addition, we apply seven coats of lacquer, providing a sleek finish." -Ion Balu
