Add a note to encourage purchase

For over twenty years, TrumCor has paved the way for quality and innovation as the premiere mute-maker for the world's finest brass players. Renowned soloists and players from the world's greatest orchestras across the globe use TrumCor mutes. Our mutes are a continuation of a fine tradition in mutes for brass instruments first developed by Frank DePolis. DePolis mutes were used by Ted Griffith as models for his eminently successful line of Ted Griffith Mutes. Later, William Cook and Walter Lawson made further improvements with Aulos Mutes, which TrumCor purchased in 1994.

TrumCor mutes are carefully hand-crafted in Tennessee, Maryland, and Texas. Our fiber mutes are made with wood and a specially formulated resonant fiber material. They have been designed to produce a muted tone that is in tune, vibrant, warm and responsive. TrumCor mutes are durable, and their sounds blend well with other instruments. Our varied selection of styles and sizes accommodates almost every model of French horn or school of playing. Best of all, these mutes preserve the unique sound quality of each instrument, in all registers and at all dynamics.

 Model Description
#4 & #5 Patterned after the famous DePolis mute, the #5 sounds especially good in the upper register. The #4, made for narrow bore horns, is a slightly smaller version of the #5.
Stealth #4 & #5 Simply the best practice mute available, the Stealth is a must for hotel rooms and late night practicing. Pitch and articulation are excellent. The Stealth comes in two sizes: the #5 and the slightly smaller #4.
#45 & #45T While having a shape and feel similar to a Rittich style mute, the #45 retains the warm sound associated with a TrumCor mute. The #45T is a tunable mute with an adjustable chimney.
#44T With a relatively open muted sound, the No. 44T is capable of tremendous dynamic contrasts. Exceptionally responsive in all registers, the 44T comes with two differently sized "donuts" for aperture control and a tunable chimney.
#24 Designed and shaped for large bore horns, especially the Conn 8D, the #24 is in essence an elongated #5
Tri-Stop A remarkably versatile stopping mute that plays well in tune with a great sound, the Tri-Stop comes with three interchangeable bell flares, each uniquely sized to accommodate tone color, register and volume needs.
Made in the USA.
