Folks, I recently picked up a Yamaha Silent Brass system. I did it primarily for the mute/mic to use as a pickup for midi effects.
I did notice a problem when I used the little amp and headphones - the original funciton. I am hearing a lot of valve clatter in the little headphones. It goes up and down with the volume setting, so it is clearly gtting in through the mic. I am considering putting a layer of softer foam on the mute to see if that reduces the problem. I could also use an older horn with felt instead of neoprene pads.
Thoughts? Suggestions? I know many of you use these.
Thanks in advance!
