Oh man I hate that Crown straight.
H&B's straights have, as I mentioned, the rubber around the tip. A Denis Wick has felt around the tip.
One of those might be worth a look.
It was a free straight mute, my band director's from college, so I couldn't say no. Better then those crappy Bach plastic ones. Talk about impossible to tune....
I will definitely have to look into a Denis Wick one, and maybe invest in a newer cup-mute considering I haven't paid for a mute yet. (too many trumpet players around here...they give out mutes like free candy on halloween). Now the only thing is my harmon mute...how do I solve that one?
Recork it! Or buy an H&B Wah-Wah Du-All.
Actually, I have too many mutes. PM me and we can do a deal that'll make us both happy.
I was thinking of getting the cup mute recorked but it looks like its been mauled by a bear, or an oboe player jealous of how in-tune it is, so it might be worth investing in a new one. But the harmon was my grandfather's when he actually played, its an insanely heavy harmon, plays closer in tune then most I've tried....Would putting a little bit of felt on the top opening affect the sound a lot? I know it would effect the tuning, but its a harmon, it doesn't like tuning lol.
The best solution : always have TWO identical trumpets, with TWO identical mouthpieces, one open and the other one with the mute. If necessary buy THREE trumpets, or FOUR…
It was hard enough convincing my parents to buy me my Bach. If I asked them to buy me a second horn they'd faint. And my savings are dedicated towards saving up for a blackburn lead pipe (my lead pipe has red rot starting on it..boo..)...soo.
Or do like Antoine Curé :
