    Best Brass makes an exceptional practice/warm-up mute as well. I acquired mine years ago, and use it for warming up in the back stage areas before a concert or some band practices. At the time,...

    The 4AY is the first mouthpiece I bought back when I restarted playing 11 years ago on my old 321. Definitely a great MP which made a difference.
