    Metallic ring with straight mute or practice mute.

    I am finding that with my cornet, I seem to get a metalic ring out of my straight mute(vacchiano) and my practice mute (wick).

    Is that normal?

    "Sounds" like something is loose. Is it only on certain notes or throughout the range? I had a 2nd slide that had gotten loose and on certain notes it would ring/buzz. Hetman's #9 fixed it.

    Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.

    I was thinking it was more of the tonal color of the mute, but now I am wondering. I check the mute to see if it were rattling, but I am pretty sure that is not the case.

    The mute modifies the sound by placing a resonant structure in front of the bell. What you hear may only be a problem for you. The further away from the horn, the greater the difference in what we perceive. Record the sound from the audience perspective (like from 30 feet or so). What you hear is probably not issue.
