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.
Denis Wick 'E.T.' mutes are well engineered 'Wow' mutes of traditional design. They all work well with tubes either in, extended, or removed. Used with a touch of musical intellect the 'ET' can produce a finely crafted 'jazz' sound - everything from Miles Davies to the Penguin Cafe Orchestra. - 4BarsRest.com
