The volume reduction is very good with this mute, which is what I was looking for (my family and neighbors thought this was very good too). It also is a great help in highlighting intonation deficiencies. However, there is a huge amount of resistance when playing - too much. The mute changes the whole way your horn plays - with the mute in I can get high notes that I wouldn't usually be able to get and after about a week or so of playing with this mute in I find it hard to play without it.
Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again later.
Good, but upgradeable

The Denis Wick practice dampener for tenorposaune is a good and inexpensive tool to be able to practice trombone even in rented apartments.
The volume reduction I find very good, problematic is however the quite high blowing resistance, the damper generates. This problem can be remedied by simply shortening the damper above the cork with a metal saw and expanding the air passages at the lower part with a drilling machine.
These small handles increase the volume hardly, but the blow resistance now almost corresponds to the without damper. In addition, the cork can be equipped with a rubber ring for a better hold in the sound cup.
Considering the relatively low price of this damper and the possibility of appreciating it without much effort, I can recommend a clear chewing recommendation!
