Comments about Yamaha MU-TR10S Aluminum Trumpet and Cornet Straight Mute:
This mute is definitely solid and gets the job done. The intonation is fantastic. However, neither the sound, projection, or feel is very exciting. The sound is rather dry and lacking in resonance for my taste. Projection-wise, I feel that I have to work fairly hard to be heard over an ensemble, compared to other mutes. It is excellent at softer dynamics, however. It is more open than a lot of mutes, but articulations just don't quite get that nice, percussive definition that I can get on some other mutes. I have also had some issues with durability. Compared to other mutes I have used, the corks are very unstable. I have had to re-glue all of them, after a fairly brief period. Overall, it's not bad, but there's nothing to justify it over the established brands. Stick with Denis Wick, Tom Crown, or TrumCor.
