Denis Wick <-> Wallace

el Presidente, 24.02.2012
I ordered both the "Wallace Practice Mute F-Tuba" as well as this Deniswick here and decided me for the second one. My comparative impressions are described in the following.

Here wins the Wallace, which makes the tuba simply quieter (but at what price - su!). The Denis Wick also reduces to moderate room volume, is thus not "loud" compared to the Wallace.

Clear victory for Denis Wick. Although this tends to me (Thein F-Tuba) at the c 'to the Scheppern, which however with a few small felt stickers could be fixed (more to this "TUNING"). The DW leaves the tuba amazingly largely its sound, it simply sounds like a brass instrument. But you have to say: It is definitely not forte playing, it tends to distort quite quickly, or has a too tinny sound. Is simply a moderator for moderate playing. Piano / Pianissimo is not a problem!
The Wallace sounds in direct comparison to what he was made of: cardboard. I did not like the sound at all, he was somehow muffig / dull, completely overtone. But he left a bit more forte than the DW, and he actually needs this intensity, too, to sound like Tuba. I therefore recommend it to those who still want to do some more strength training in the muted condition.

Another victory for the DW. Between D and c ', there is really no need at all to improve the intonation with the approach. Over and over, however, becomes increasingly hairy. All in all, this is true: plug and play.
At the Wallace I did not even a reasonable octave between the F and f brought together. Just the F was already a lot too high.

And another victory for the DW, which has TWO holes to the top. Especially in the intonation-technically stress-free midrange (medium pitch, medium volume) it is completely problem-free to blow. From the f ', however, I can no longer succeed in doing anything sensible, just as in the depth from that, B.
As can be seen from the previous points, the Wallace has a higher air resistance, he has only ONE hole. This reduces the basic strength (see above), but at the same time the response is worsened. You are blowing much harder against the damper.

The DW has only one foam ring. In this way he inclined with me to come with his corpus to the sound cup interior and thereby rattling. This I have simply fixed by a few small black felt stickers, which I around approximately glued at the height of the seam.
Possibly one could lower the basic strength of the DW by closing one of the two bores with a cork. But I have not tried that yet.
At the Wallace I did not try anything in "tuning", the basic sound was too easy for me.

Clear overall victory for the "Denis Wick DW5519 Tuba Practice Mute", which strikes the "Wallace Practice Mut F-Tuba" effortlessly in all my important concerns. Better sound, better intonation, higher flexibility. And at the same price!
The "handle" is by the way a leather cloak, not a rigid metal hanger, what it looks like in the picture.

In conclusion, I would like to mention that I am actually a Bass Trombone, where I am very satisfied with the "Best Brass". If one compares that this Mini-Aluteil already half of the Denis Wick here costs, the DW is directly as a bargain, although the Best Brass is simply unbeatable (to transport in the sound cup in the case, lowest resistance). Why is this review presented in a review of the Denis Wick as "Best Brass" for Tuba, I do not understand ...
