Did you do a "before and after" test with the application of ball pein hammer to your Jo-Ral Bubble?
Actually yes kind of. My teacher has the same mute and it was dented up and I liked the sound of it better than my then pristine one. Definitely has a smoother sound now.
For a good old straight mute I got a Bach stainless steel Stradivarius. Sounds good and can be loud if you want it to be. Nicest thing is that it refuses to fall out and if it does get dropped it wont dent easily. I don't have a huge number of mutes, just a harmon ,cup and straight. I don't get into that many tough mute decisions that way. Most hacks aren't in that type of situation where the individual sound is so important, just muted is what they want. Best wishes.
I seems to be more and more common now that composers write "mute" but don't actually know the different types. That doesn't irk me as much as when they don't realize that it takes a few beats to put the mute in and take it out!
Gotta love the quarter rest mute change
Not me. This was a special piece written for Choir, Orchestra and Solo baritone singer, by an amateur composer who had no idea what different mutes existed, let alone sounded like. It was part funded by The Arts Council here in the UK. It was nice to be asked to demonstrate the various types available. So not ‘unprepared’ at all, just not experienced in the world of Brass mutes.
I would guess that if unpreparedness in other is a source of annoyance for you, your life is not as pleasant as it could be...
Hey, that kind of change the trumpet refurbisher's dream.
Not to mention having to pre-lick that cork of a Harmon mute when you know a rapid change be a coming.
The mute stays put but the adjustable cup comes loose.
