world famous in New Plymouth…
Needing to practice at odd times and in odd places over the years (and the absence of a suitable mute) was the reason Trevor Bremner designed the sshhmute. In development over several years in his New Plymouth workshop, the sshhmute has been in been in full commercial production for almost 20 years and has been successfully launched to answer a market need for an effective mute for brass instruments in a price range to suit budding musicians and professionals alike.
With the sshhmute already in high demand, Bremner Music decided to branch out and create new products for the sshhmute line - the Whisper and sshhtraight ranges.
The Whisper, currently available for Trumpet/Cornet, creates a professional and unique timbre to contribute to a player’s or brass section’s arsenal of instrument sounds. Durable, lightweight, and high-quality, the Whisper is the perfect mute for your on-stage quiet passages.
So... what makes the sshhtraight different to other brands of straight mutes? For starters, it is made with the same hard-wearing and light-weight ABS plastic that we use for our sshhmute and Whisper mute range. Not only does this make the mute light to carry around, but the ABS plastic results in giving the mute a warmer tone, as opposed to the metallic sound of most straight mutes on the market. Adding to this, the mute is very free blowing and perfectly in tune right through the range... top to bottom!
