    Hi Manny,

    This is probably a commonly asked question, but what exactly is a "sourdine robinson"? I've encountered it a few times, mostly in French music and most recently in a Tomasi's Semaine Sainte A Cuzco. Thanks!

    I bought an old RR cup a few years ago on Ebay and didn't care much for the feel or sound for that matter. The modern equivalent would be the Stonelined cup, but I much prefer a Trumcor Cup for the French pieces.

    I picked up a RR mute out of curiosity. The closest thing Stonelined makes today is the Mica-mute which is basically a felt lined cup mute. My poor old RR mute is falling apart so I use the Mica-mute instead.
