I have a hard time reaching my mutes for a quick mute change if they are on the floor.
And, I once saw the entire trumpet section of the U.S. Coast Guard band with a red dot in their crotch, as they quickly removed the standard Humes and Berg red and white cup mutes from their trumpet bells and stuck them between their legs. An amusing sight to a young trumpeter to be sure.
There are many other good mute holders out there, so why in the world make my own?...
Because… will that answer suffice?
If you want a mute rack, you can build it yourself, or I will make one for $30 including shipping in the United States. Quantity and dealer discounts available.
I make them for four trumpet mutes.
If you want an adjustable cup mute made from an aluminum beverage bottle, I will make one for $25 including shipping in the U.S.
