What is aÂ goodÂ horn mute?
The horn mute is often required in the musical repertory, a prime example being Gustav Mahlerâ€™s Seventh Symphony. It is imperativeÂ to have a mute that offers good sound, intonation and a secure feeling.
With mutes, the conversation often turns to resistance, because resistance often influences sound and intonation.Â The challenge in developing a good mute is to find the optimal balance of itâ€™sÂ attributes. Through cooperation with well-known professional hornists, it has been possible to build a mute that incorporates all of these qualities.
