Mute Meister Showtone Mute for Trumpet - Warburton/Ingram
The new "ShowTone" mute is a significant improvement over the classic Shastock Solotone mute in both construction and resonance. This mute is very sought after by trumpet players who do a great deal of work in the pit orchestras of Broadway and West End Show productions. Resonance is optimized by maintaining the same material throughout its construction. Intonation, slotting and tonal qualities of the ShowTone far exceed the original 1920s version. Unlike the original Solotone, the new ShowTone does not incorporate brass ferrules on each end. This adds to its resonance and increases its range of overtones.
