The Denis Wick Straight Mute
Ever since the design of the Denis Wick straight mute in 1968, it has been a favourite among brass players worldwide. This is due to a number of factors, boasting great intonation, easy to blow against and the ability to hit forceful loud dynamics to name a few. The mute is very open, meaning that the instrument is not restricted by the mute when tucked in to the bell. As opposed to many mutes on the market that silence the instrument slightly when playing, the Denis Wick straight mute allows the performer to keep a full rich sound.
Traditional Manufacturing Methods
Denis Wick's company have stuck with their construction methods from their founded years. Using a lathe spinning technique, the mutes are hand carved to create a 'work-hardened' item. This makes the mute lightweight and easy to use. Real cork is used on the mute to ensure that is provides a snug fit inside of the bell of the instrument at all times.
The iconic mute for a generation of performers - and one that has passed the test of time. Superbly crafted and engineered (they all look and sound alike), it has been seen on major contest stages on every continent of the globe. The mute produces a clear, brilliant sound that allows for a wide dynamic range with secure intonation. No wonder so many have been sold. For cornets in particular, having a complete set of quality homogeneous mutes is a must - and worth their weight in gold. - 4BarsRest.com
