    Not really bland as much as corny, but not too much difference really.

    Or better yet... keep the same mute... buy a six pack of beer (may I suggest a Great Lake's Sampler)... fill the mute... drink... blow... drink off some more... blow... drink off some more... blow... UNTIL YOU CAN BLOW NO MORE!

    Wouldn't it be difficult to put the mute in the horn with the beer in it? Or is there some sort of disconnect going on? I guess if you pointed it at the ground and had your friend hold the mute, then you could test what it would sound like without much trouble.

    I am really sensing an emptiness at TM that goes back to Manny leaving.
