I've tried various brands of bucket mutes through the years, but this beats the competition hands down. The mute is fantastic quality, with no rough or sharp edges and nicely padded clips to attach it to the bell of the trumpet. Depending on the exact size of your bell the clips might need bending slightly to get a good grip. The bucket has some issues fitting on smaller bells, such as some cornets and Eb and D trumpets, but with a small amount of bending the clips this can be fixed. The sound of the mute is beautiful and mellow, with the adjustable tightness of the bucket allowing for a wider range of tonal colour.
