    I've noticed that sometimes Wynton uses a smaller mute inside his bell when he is also using the plunger. It's red and white, so I'm assuming it's a Humes and Berg (?)

    Is it the pixie mute or the Glenn Miller Short mute? I do some plunger work with my group, and I'd like to try it out. I just need to know which one to order.

    Anyone know this?

    You're right. It is a Pixie. Use the Pixie with the Trixie.
    Sounds like a Honeymooners skit :lol:

    ...Saw him a few weeks ago with Univ MD, Eastern Shore Jazz Ensemble.
    He borrowed a mute from a guy in the trumpet section.

    With the bell on that Monette (it was huge), any mute would look small.
