    Hi
    I have a problem, grip on my wee-zee mute fell off, actually it wore itself and also it was not in a good shape from the start, since I acquired it.
    Now my wee-zee has no grip I use light sock to keep it on trumpet, but it looks stupid although sock isnt producing any additional backpressure.
    Can I repair it myself or should I take it to repair shop (which in 100 miles away)

    I love this mute. Really has a good sound. Doesn't come with a stem. Now the real problem is that foam-ish black stuff. I haven't found it available anywhere. Repair shops don't seem to have it either. Therefore, to get the "grip material" replaced, you just have to settle for having it "corked". Not a "bad" thing...just what you will have to do. Heck, I've read where Bobby Shew said that as soon as you get one of these mutes with the foam grip stuff on it, immediately remove it and replace with cork because it plays better. ?? Eh...I don't know. That's really neither here nor there.

    Regardless..just go to a shop and have it "corked". Should be a good mute for you.

    You can buy 8.5" x 11" sheets of very thin cork (cork craft sheets) at a local craft shop. Michaels carries it if you live in the eastern US. Use contact cement to glue it to your mute.

    Hasn't anyone else thought to contact the mute manufacturer for a replacement conical grip rubber?
