Humes & Berg is definitely not the sort of company to be held down to one kind of product. They make several kinds of gear, and what you'll find in this selection of Humes & Berg brass instrument accessories is a huge variety of mutes for all different kinds of brass. There are lots to choose from, so no matter what sort of mute you're looking for, you can expect to find it right here. And since each style has a different effect on your instrument's sound, there's a ton of potential for creating one-of-a-kind performances.
Straight mutes, like the Humes & Berg 122 Stonelined Trumpet Short Straight Mute, are the most common type. These will give your sound a metallic, or even nasal, timbre. Another go-to style is the cup, as in the Humes & Berg 171 Bass Trombone Cup Mute. By creating a miniature echo chamber in the bell, these mutes deliver a muffling effect. Did you know that Humes & Berg actually invented a lot of today's mute varieties? One good example of that is the 153 Trombone Cleartone Mute, based on the treble-attenuating "solo-tone" mutes pioneered by H&B in the 1930s.
Some of the most interesting Humes & Berg mutes are the larger varieties, including bucket mutes such as the Humes & Berg 158 Trombone Velvet Tone Bucket Mute and 108 Stonelined Velvet Tone Trumpet Mute. These attach to the front of the bell instead of going inside, and their effect is to bring down higher frequencies, making the instrument's sound lower and softer. You'll also find some rarer mutes in the Humes & Berg lineup, such as the vintage, jazz-inspired wah-wah and derby mutes. These are great when you want an authentically old-school sound.
In fact, the history of Humes & Berg goes back to 1935, almost as far as mutes themselves. That's no surprise, since a lot of the mute styles still in use today were invented or improved by H&B. That makes Humes & Berg brass instrument accessories an easy choice when you're deciding where to look for your next mute. After all, what better way to know you're getting great quality than by going right to the source?
