Silent Brass Pickup Mute
The Pickup Mute combines a high-performance mute with an internal microphone to pickup sound. Significantly smaller and lighter than previous versions, the mute offers superior muting performance, delivers excellent intonation over a wide pitch range, and natural playability. A new compact design now lets you put your instrument in its case with the mute in the bell.
Please note that the Pickup Mute may not fit some instruments with significantly different bell shapes or bell diameters. Please check before purchasing.
Brass Resonance Modelling
The Silent Brass Personal Studio module features our unique Brass Resonance Modelling technology, which recreates the sound of non-muted brass instruments to correct your instrument’s tone when the Silent Brass Pickup Mute is in place. The resulting sound is so realistic, it’s virtually indistinguishable from the un-muted tone.
The Silent Brass Offers More Enjoyment
Connect the output from an audio player, smartphone, et al to the AUX IN jack on the Personal Studio and enjoy playing along with your favorite recordings or 'minus one' practice aids. The headphone output can also be used as an output jack for recording and stage use.
Do not use the AUX IN jack when using the PHONES jack as an output jack.
