What is a good horn mute?

The horn mute is often required in the musical repertory, a prime example being Gustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony. It is imperative 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. The challenge in developing a good mute is to find the optimal balance of it’s attributes. Through cooperation with well-known professional hornists, it has been possible to build a mute that incorporates all of these qualities.

 

Horn-Crafts mutes are offered in three models:
Sylva: Beechwood | Middle resistance | 130 gr.
Khaya: Mahogany | Light resistance | 125 gr.
