    I live in an apartment. For a year+ I used a Wick practice mute. Used a Brass Spa practice mute thereafter.

    Now, no mute. Neighbors say they like it!!!??? The walls must be VERY kind.

    I don't live in an apartment, but I don't get to practice until we're finished helping kids with homework and they kiddies are in bed. I do have a silent brass system, but generally don't like the wires so mostly use a harmon with the stem yanked out.

    It feel less restrictive the the silent brass and I don't seem to have any issues and the kids stay asleep.

    It is always preferable to practice without a mute.

    humble comes from HUng over and aMBLE. It means that you play slowly when you are hung over. You get good when you practice alot, the mute keeps you from getting a headache....................
