I use a Crown Royal for my straight bag
That felt bag looks interesting. I've been using a Soulo mute at the church on account of otherwise being much louder than the choir. That gets the volume down for them but I don't think it suits all the music we play, especially about Christmas time. Does the felt mute help with this can you tell me? I would like to keep the volume down but maintain the same tone/quality. Playing without a mute, I have to hold back so much to keep the volume down in that church I find I'm almost holding my breath as I play, and the tone is a bit thin.
I like my Soulo Mute, and I sometimes use it on acoustic gigs. But similar to what you found on church gigs, it doesn't always suit the music (like any mute, of course).
The felt mute or felt bag takes a bit of the edge off the sound.
I found that playing less edgy with a real comfortable mouthpiece can do this too.
With that said and my above post.... I use a Crown Royal bag for my Crown Royal.
I throw it away, it gets in the way.
What... the bag or the contents?
What's in the bottle can make it comfy too.
It was answered in an inference of the bag.
playing in church? use the flugel instead of the trumpet. softer sound, and the audience will love it. as to the choir - let them sing louder.
Nothing other than the idea to play Christmas tunes in the street with a bucket out front to collect tips. Made $130 in 2.5 hours the first day plus got hired by a store to play out front the next day. Made another $300 that day. $200 was in tips. The idea couldn't have happened at a better time as money was tight due to an unforeseen financial burden days before Christmas and my daughter's birthday.
