Straight Mute: Trumcor #45
This TrumCor mute is required by the top two bands in TWB. It is a highly recommended model, and Laura Lawson also recommends it.
A special thank-you to Heather Test, manager of TrumCor, who is the horn professor at TCU in Fort Worth, TX for being such a positive, efficient, and knowledgable professional regarding TrumCor Mutes!
While having a shape and feel similar to a "Rittich" style mute, the No. 45 retains the warm sound associated with a TrumCor mute. The No. 45T is a tunable mute with an adjustable chimney.
