Denis Wick Tenor Trombone Straight Mutes

The Denis Wick DW5505 trombone straight mute is one of the most popular and best-designed trombone mutes available. It was developed by Denis Wick to meet his own exacting standards as Principal Trombone of the London Symphony Orchestra. It went through a long process of development, during which he noticed the importance of anodising (which hardens the mute). Several small adjustments were made to the size and shape to perfect the tuning and tone. One of the notable qualities of this mute is that it works perfectly in the low register, including all the F-valve notes, right down to low B natural and beyond.

Huge dynamic range, making it suitable for both symphony and jazz use
The aluminium is very hard and resonant which means the tone is very even and has exceptional carrying power
Light, which means the response of the instrument remains very effortless
Trombone speaks as easily as it would without the mute
