Rich tone.

Willie Berg invented stonelined mutes in 1935. They are the finest brass instrument mutes available in the world. Stonelined mutes play perfectly in tune and are easy blowing. Stonelined Mutes deliver the perfect professional sound all the time. Included in the many features that allow the outstanding colors of sound is the secret formula used to line each and every stonelined mute.

Not for every straight mute situation


from Kansas

Comments about Humes & Berg 170 Bass Trombone Straight Mute:

The H & B straight mute is great for pop and jazz band usage. I would never recommend this for concert band, orchestra or recital music. It's economical, but will not stand up to a lot of rough use. I pretty much only use one for jazz band on account of the lightness and ease of handling for quick mute changes.. I knew one of the trombonist's from the Basie band back in the 1970's and he said they used a lot of them because they get banged up a lot and have to be replaced often. A nice thing is, if you drop it, it doesn't clang like a metal one.
