Comments about Humes & Berg 163 Tenor Trombone Metal Pixie Mute:
I've had my pixie mute for about 10 years now if you take care of it this thing will last and it adds that great characteristic buzz to your sound when doing plunger work. I've used this for many many Duke Ellington charts. When you first receive the mute it has one problem: it doesn't give that buzzy sound that the mute is known for! Don't worry it's an easy fix! This mute is built with a short metal tube inside the opening of the pixie and I have found that this pipe ruins that nice buzzing sound that you want from your pixie. The metal pipe is usually glued in quite loosely so I suggest wiggling it back and forth until you can slide it out. After removing this useless piece of metal from the mute you should have a beautiful sounding pixie that adds that buzz that you want from your pixie.
