I highly recommend this mute!
JusVe22, 25.04.2017
I use this warm up mute to practice in my apartment. It plays very well and it does not fall out of the bell of my horn. The sound is reduced enough so that my neighbours do not have to complain about the 'big sound' when I play without mute.

I also think it is useful that you can practice your intonation very well when playing with a practice mute, you are forced to listen more carefully to your sound.

The price and the quality are OK to me, I tested a few other warm up mutes and they were not as good as this one.

Sehr gute - aber ACHTUNG !!!
Andreas901, 20.01.2010
Mir wurde dieser Übungsdämpfer als Weiterentwicklung vom Entwickler des Yamaha Silent Brass empfohlen.

Dieser Übungsdämpfer ist besser konstruiert, als viele andere Übungsdämpfer. Die Ansprache, Intonation und Tonstabilität ist sehr gut. Dies gilt auch für den bei Horn-Dämpfern häufig kritischen Bereich tiefer als c' (in F). Diese Eigenschaften sind ähnlich dem Yamaha Silent Brass.

Der Best Brass reduziert die Lautstärke sehr gut, hat aber nicht das Ziel den Ton maximal zu dämpfen. Der Yamaha Silent Brass dämpft deutlich mehr. Dies sehe ich eher als Vorteil des Best Brass Dämpfer.

Der Best Brass lässt dafür mehr Luft durch und erhöht den Luftwiederstand nicht so stark. Der Ton klingt sehr viel offener als bei Yamaha Silent Brass. Dies sehe ich eher als Vorteil des Best Brass Dämpfer.

Ich stehe Übungsdämpfern sehr kritisch gegenüber und halte sie für den täglichen oder regelmäßigen Gebrauch für ungeeignet. Regelmäßiges Üben mit einem Dämpfer verschlechtert die Tonqualität des Hornisten, weil man den offenen Ton beim Üben nicht mehr hört. Das Horn offen zu blasen ist ganz anders. Man bläst mit Dämpfer etwas anders in das Horn und übt diese gedämpfte Art sich quasi ein. Das ungedämpfte Hörerlebnis ist aber beim Üben existentiell Wichtig.

Der Körper des Dämpfers ist aus dünnwandigem Alluminium gefertigt. Der erste unvorsichtige "Absturz" auf Teppichboden hat der Dämpfer leider mit einer Delle quitiert.

Ein Übungsdämpfer ist kein Ersatz für einen Übungsraum, oder um die Nerven der Nachbarn zuschonen!!! Für kurzes Einblasen im Hotel oder Sonntag Vormittag zu Hause ist der Dämpfer aber sehr gut zu gebrauchen.

essai Best brass
Stephane881, 10.12.2012
Très bon produit, permet de jouer sans déranger ses voisins, ou pour chauffer discrètement avant un concert. Attention toute fois, la pression est différente, la justesse aussi, et il faut éviter de la faite tomber car elle se bosse facilement.
