Since its original design in 1968 the Denis Wick Trumpet/Cornet Straight Mute has become the most copied mute there is, and with good reason - it's also a worldwide favourite. This is down to the simple face that it stays in tune across all registers better than most mutes on the market, and doesn't affect the blow of the instrument.
The latest design of the Denis Wick Trumpet/Cornet Straight Mute counters the problems of other trumpet mutes and previous iterations by being larger. This gives it a fuller sound and reduces pitch sharpness, giving you real clarity. Another area where this mute is superior to others is in Denis Wick's manufacturing process; each mute is handcrafted for ultimate precision. Hand-spinning the aluminium, from which the Denis Wick Trumpet/Cornet Straight Mute is made, gives the mute a hardness not found in other mutes. It is this hardness which enhances its resonance and makes it very light. This creates a free blowing mute which improves responsiveness. The mute also uses real cork to keep the mute firmly in place when in use.
