OVERVIEW

Great Mute!

The Humes and Berg mutes are considered to be the industry standard and are often copied but rarely equaled. These guys know all the physics behind how mutes work and have been developing products for years. They are also economical compared to some of the custom mutes on the market today.

Comments about Humes & Berg 153 Trombone Cleartone Mute:

In order to use this mute I really feel that the corks need to be "doctored". The mute constricts and is very sharp. I added about 1/4 inch of cork to the mute in order to make it easier to play in tune. If that isn't done you have to either pull the tuning slide a good 1 1/2" out or tune down by using the slide. Adding cork seemed to be the best alternative.

A sound like no other! Right out of the 30's.

Comments about Humes & Berg 153 Trombone Cleartone Mute:

Our trumpet player had one of these. Dick is in his 80's and played with a mute like this Back In the Day. I've always loved his sound and decided to see what it would do for my trombone. It's GREAT. I get a straight mute kind of buzz, but with a mellow overtone. Sounds odd... but that's the way it is. And the price...WOW! Dick owned a music store in the past, and he said the price I paid way lower than he could have gotten it for wholesale!
