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.

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.
