Discipline: Product

SILENT Brass™ is a muting system for brass instruments that combines a Pickup Mute™ and Personal Studio™ (power supply and signal processor) so that players can practice or perform anytime, anyplace, with a natural instrument feel. The Pickup Mute™ quiets the instrument’s sound to the level of a whisper, while the proprietary signal-processing technology in the Personal Studio™ let players hear their performance through headphones or a PA with such a sense of immediacy that it is easy to forget they have a mute in place at all. The wave-shaped Pickup Mute™ naturally puts the thumb and fingers where they will have the best grip when inserting.
