  1. The Yamaha Silent Brass practice mute system lets you play your horn anywhere you want, anytime you want, and with just the kind of ambiance you feel like. You can mix into the sounds of a CD player, other Silent Brass or other instruments with electronic output such as Clavinovas, Silent Pianos, synthesizers or electronic keyboards, and output your playing into a tape deck or even an amp with speakers.

    Never again will you have to search for a practice room, have to "stop because itís getting late". The Silent Brass system includes the STX-2 Personal Studio, Pickup mute, earphones, and an adapter.

    The pickup mute is made of lightweight plastic, with a unique rubber sealer to hold it securely in the bell. When used with the Silent Brass system, it has none of that stuffy restricted feeling of conventional practice mutes. In fact, it blows so close to a natural open horn that you simply wonít believe it until you actually experience it for yourself. Play high or low, loud or soft, and your pitch will remain true and centered.

    A special microphone inside the mute relays your sound to the Personal Studio.

My Daughter is delighted with the product, I have the same system for my trumpet, which I am delighted with, and I wanted to get her a special present on completion of her PHD, she is enjoying playing again, without disturbing other residents in their flat.

4* for merchandise. The practice mute is works well. With the earphones (or cheap headphones) and the Silent Brass "studio" it sounds very tinny. Today I have borrowed some good headphones, and the tone is completely different - still not as 'real' as Yamaha suggest, but a much better timbre. Explains varied reviews. If you don't have any already you may need to spend another £250 on headphones to get this effect. Not sure if it is worth it.
