I love this mute! I am so glad I found this plunger mute, and even more glad that I bought it! I had been searching for the right plunger for some time and I was never really happy with anything that I tried; some of them sounded OK but they were just too difficult to hold and operate while playing. This EMO plunger feels so comfortable in my hand and I can really exaggerate my wah-wah sound without losing any grip or balance on my horn.
Also, it looks really cool! The bright blue and red really stand out on the bandstand. Plus, the inside is lined with red felt that is really beautiful and adds a sense of sophistication to this mute.
The best plunger I have tried, and a very reasonable price.
Tuneful, good seal at the rim, doesn't damage the bell of the horn. Easy to control in use, hard wearing and resistant to damage in transit. Colourful appearance looks good and is easy to find on gigs. You could pay a lot more and not get any better performance.
