Piercing and bright, the sound of a straight mute is unmistakable. It’s perhaps the most widely used because of its ability to complement a host of musical styles—delivering an exciting tonal quality with near-perfect intonation. Lightweight and easy to use, Jo-Ral straight mutes are a favorite of trumpet players at every level and in any discipline, from classic jazz players to symphonic musicians.
The Jo-Ral Piccolo Trumpet Straight Mute made of spun aluminum, and has been tested to perform evenly in all registers. Jo-Ral mutes also feature neoprene-enhanced composite cork pads that provide extra durability. The result is a more pliable cork that grips well and doesn’t dry out, become brittle or break off—so it lasts longer while easily accommodating fine adjustments for a perfect fit.

One of my go-to mutes. Unfortunately, Jo-Ral does not use a super adhesive glue so they definitely need reinforcement. The corks are also quite large and may need to be filed down to fit certain piccolo bells.
