Comments about Harmon J1 Triple Play Combo Trumpet Mute:

It just doesn't give the right sound in any configuration. Too tinny as a straight mute and cup mute. As a plunger, there is no soft lining, so it clangs against your bell when you close it. To make matters worse, just one drop of the mute and it was dented enough that the cup would no longer stay on the mute. Don't cheap out, buy a quality straight and cup, and get a sink plunger to do the job right!

A rather cheaply built mute

Comments about Harmon J1 Triple Play Combo Trumpet Mute:

I bought this mute because A) I wanted to have both a straight mute and cup mute in one and B) the price was right. Unfortunately, I felt like you "get what you pay for". It is a very light weight mute and simply feels cheap. My main issue is that the factory corks that come with the mute are VERY thin and narrow--so much in fact that, even on my tiny jazz horn, the mute would go in all the way so much so that the rim of the cup would touch the bell! I had to remove the corks and fashion my own out of wine bottle corks. Another issue is, that the "cup" part of the mute becomes loose very quickly and will spin in place. The mute lacks any sort of snug fit with the cup section and it feels clumsy to remove the cup section. Lastly, because of the design, the mute does not stand up on end very well at all since it has that little flange that sticks out. It WILL fall over frequently. On as side note, do not use that cup section as a "plunger". It is not a plunger and will probably ding and scrape your bell (I had not intention of using it as such as I already own a rubber plunger).

Occasional Problems

Comments about Harmon J1 Triple Play Combo Trumpet Mute:

This mute works and sounds great as well as cutting back on the number of mutes you have to lug around with you. The one complaint that I have is that the plunger occasionally comes off the straight mute when you're in a hurry to get the cup mute out of your bell. This doesn't usually bother me too much but in some pieces my stand partner had to completely cover for me because i was still fumbling with my mute.

Comments about Harmon J1 Triple Play Combo Trumpet Mute:

I bought this mute and it plays fantastic however one day it got pushed off my mute stand and the mute landed on the plunger end it warped the mute so it was hard to make it a cup mute the plunger would always fall off. So me and some buddies bent it back so now itÆs fine. This also happened to one of my buddies so we did the same. But all in all I am happy of the mute and how convenient it is.
