The 5554 Denis Wick mute offers an amazing range of tone colors to any brass section and is essential for the performance of a huge range of musical styles. This wooden straight mute gives a very special tone color, especially in soft playing because they must be hand-made, which has always been expensive and difficult to find. By using new and ingenious manufacturing techniques, it has been possible to produce these mutes at reasonable prices. Construction is of Finnish birch faced plywood for the sidewalls and marine ply for the bases. Lined with vulcanized fiber. Made in England.
