    Well it is time for me as a trumpet player to join the ranks of those who have played the rediculous trumpet licks of Respigi.

    I am playing in a Pines of Rome Concert with the local Orchestra (Symphony Nova Scotia with Richard Simoneau and Curtis Deitz for anyone who knows them).

    Just wondering what kind of mute best suites your guys' loud factor.

    Cheers

    Sit up straight. Use a Jo-Ral copper bottom straight mute. Don't blow those good notes into the stand! Blow a hole in the balcony in front of you :cool:

    The Yamaha straight mute with a copper bottom is my loud mute of choice. It is relatively easy to cut through the orchestra, and it can take on a lot of different qualities according to your mental concept of the sound you want.

    I like the Trumcor as well but I prefer the regular bottom to the copper bottom. It's the best straight mute I've ever played, in addition to being loud.

    all of the suggestions are good ones, but what matters the most is what works for you. Go to the music store and try the mutes out, pick the one that works the best for you. All we can do is give suggestions of what worked for us.

    Count me as a TrumCor guy, as well. I like the sound and the intonation is terrific. With the larger bell horns, intonation can be a hassle. That's why I am always foraging for mutes when I go on tour. I think they do a great jo over there.

    Manny,

    any specific bottom on that one? I see there is a copper bottom one.
