    Ok, so I bought this Pixie mute, (yes, my very first) for which I would like to have
    some advice about how far in the bell it should be allowed to go.

    I have already shaved off the corks appr. 2mm (0,08")

    The pic shows the mute position after the shaving.

    Nords is shaving his mutes... ROFL. I suggest that you start by getting a haircut for your trumpets....

    You generally shave it enough that you can put the mute in and be able to close your plunger over the bell.

    Thanks SB.

    Seems that I need to shave a tiny bit more of the corks.

    Then I have to call the hairdresser to order time for a trumpet hair cut..[​IMG]
