Denis Wick mutes have set the standard for tone and intonation for many years. They bring an amazing range of tone colours to any brass section and are essential for the performance of a huge range of music, from classical composers such as Mahler and Shostakovich to film scores, avant-garde music, big bands and small group jazz.
The popular trumpet straight mute (DW5504) has set a standard, which has been widely copied but never equalled. The hand crafting of these mutes gives the high-quality aluminium a ‘work-hardened’ quality, which makes for a very resonant product that will give a wonderful fortissimo when it is needed. It also has the best intonation of any trumpet mute available.
The hand-made wooden mutes are especially effective in quiet, spooky music and are widely used in orchestras for the performance of early twentieth century music. All Denis Wick mutes are designed to work in all registers, so even the very difficult low notes of the bass trombone work perfectly whichever Denis Wick mute is being used.
