Our practice mutes with adjustable resistance are the most innovative mutes available. Our unique designs allow the player to find and set the level of sound required.

The compact practice mutes for lower brass (flugel to Baritone) can be transported completely in the bell and can be tuned to the instrument.

Our aim is to supply the very best products which will enhance the players performance. We are continually developing new and interesting products, which include a comprehensive and superb range of mouthpieces, truly safe and totally non-toxic lubricants, as well as new Jazz and bucket mutes.

All products are designed by Iain Muirhead in our Glasgow workshop and are genuinely unique to us.
