A great system improved.
The Silent Brass system lets you play your horn anywhere you want, anytime you want, and with just the kind of ambiance you want. You can mix into the sounds of a CD player, a Silent Piano, an electronic keyboard or another instrument using the Silent Brass System, 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 or have to stop because it's getting late. The system includes the Silent Brass module, pickup mute, locking cable, belt-loop/strap, button earphones, and 9V battery. The module has been redesigned. It is sleeker, smaller, the sound quality has been improved, noise reduced, and the controls simplified.

Comments about Yamaha SB59C Silent Brass System for Trombone:
I got this device to plug the headphone out into my pedalboard and guitar amp. It works pretty well in this regard. I bought an armband mp3 player holder (for runners) to hold it onto the trombone by the tuning slide. It mutes the trombone well enough, the resistance is pretty strong, strong enough to make the playing feel less than natural. I suppose this could build strength having to deal with the resistance. I would say that the electronic signal's tone was somewhat thin and "ducky", not much warmth or bass and the wind/breath sound is emphasized. It would be better if there was some kind of tone control, even if one knob or simple. I run it into an Eden Bass DI that i have for bass which thickens out the tone. The echo function is essentially useless. This could be good for practicing at home where one can't be too loud, and I'm pretty happy with it as a trombone pickup for my setup.
