If you can’t make your mute change fast enough throw your bell deep into the stand and play the line, it will sound like a bucket mute and no one will know the difference (or care) including the director…..
Buy a trumpet with a built in switch that can turn on mute mode and open mode. Boom.
I've shaved/broken a few corks in college using a Manhasset mute holder. Too, there is sound picked up by the audio. Still, you're picking them up by the base and roll/twist them into your instrument so I can't discern the gaff of trouble others have.
I make DIY mute holders out 37 cents clamps from Home Depot and 1/3 of a wire hanger bent into something between a P and J in shape. I have 3 or 4 in each case, they look like junk, they work great, nobody steals them and if I lose one, they are easy to replace.

Just use an Echo cornet or trumpet...
What if the trumpets are seated behind bassoons or to their left?
What if it's a band?!
So many mute difficulties!
