Thread: For Sale/Trade: Euphonium Travel Practice Mutes

    Thumbs up For Sale/Trade: Euphonium Travel Practice Mutes

    Over the past few years, I've been trying out practice travel mutes (ones that fit flush in the bell with the horn in the case), trying to find the one that works for me and my horn. For my last horn (a Wessex Dolce) that was the Best Brass mute, but now with my Yamaha Neo, that's not the case. All are in pretty much new shape, although the Best Brass mute has a few minor scuffs here and there. These sort of mutes have mixed reviews everywhere you look, either people love them, or as was my case, they just don't slot very well on any notes below F or D on the staff. Your mileage may vary, and due to shipping costs, I'd rather not accept returns. I would accept a trade/barter of a different practice mute (travel or full size), or an Alliance DC3 mouthpiece or maybe another "4" size large shank mouthpiece. Below are the mutes I'm wanting to sell or trade:

    Yeah, I I kinda talked them down in my original post - I could never make it as a salesman. I have a bad tendency to talk myself out of a sale.
    It seems like it's hit or miss for these sort of things. Some people love them and some hate them. It may be also a case of tempering one's expectations on intonation and slotting. Of course it's not going to play just like an unmuted horn, and really the way I see it, these are for when you're traveling and need to keep your chops up or for quick technical practice in a hotel room or backstage. I've got a full sized Humes & Berg practice mute for my trombone that I've had since highschool and absolutely love.

    The Mike McLean mute has sold for $50. The Denis Wick (https://www.ebay.com/itm/266428035074) and Best Brass (https://www.ebay.com/itm/266422059304) are still for sale. No clue if the Mike McLean was referred through the forum or not.

    The Denis Wick mute sold for $100 on eBay. I'm going to just keep the Best Brass mute, so you can ✔️ this post, David.
