Trumpet Mute Sound Difference?
I'm shopping for trumpet mutes. I found a regular straight mute and a short straight mute (which was cheaper than the regular one). Before I bought anything I was wondering if there was a difference in sound between the two of them. Also does a regular plunger (store bought) work the same as the plunger mute made for the trumpet? Thanks guys
Compare the sound and material of the straight mutes. A Denis Wick straight mute is good as is the Harmon, and Humes&Berg which usually is the lowest price. The plunger material of a hardware store type plunger is usually thicker than the Humes&Berg which is thinner rubber and more flexible and also has a small grip to make it easier to play and is worth the small price.
