is it possible, how i can do that without affect the sound of the mute? saludos desde mexico
There are several sources of precut replacement cork. Try musicalarts.com, thebandroom.boz, wwbw,com or your local music store/repair shop. Harmon mutes just use sheet cork, you just have to make a paper template and glue it into place.
I've found that mutes fit better and are less prone to slipping out at the most critical moment when you replace the cork with the same thickness of medium soft rubber. A few of my mutes had that stuff on from the factory - my H & B Harmon, e.g; and it's easier to find that quality of rubber in the required thickness in a hardware store. Cheaper as well.
If you are talking Harmon mute, check out post 5 from this link: http://www.trumpetmaster.com/vb/f131/harmon-mute-repair-68555.html

Should be straightforward - most repair shops can do this.
be sure to get a quote for the repair if you take it to a shop. I usually replace my own cork but had used up my last ones when I decided to re-cork a cup mute to give to a high school kid that needed a cup mute. The shop charged me $18, $6 for the cork [$2 a piece] and $12 to tune the mute. How could they tune the mute, they didn't even know what horn it was for?
ohh, i need to tune a mute after repair it??
The new corks will be thicker than the original ones. Once they are on they probably need to be sanded down to optimize the fit/sound/tuning.
