OVERVIEW

For private practice, anytime, anywhere!

The Yamaha SB79 Silent Brass Trumpet Mute System lets you play as loud as you want without disturbing others. Aux in allows you to play along with CD or MP3 recordings. Echo-enhanced sound mode creates large-room ambience. Volume and input lo/hi controls. Basic system includes Silent Brass module, pickup mute, locking cable, belt
loop/strap, button earphones, and 9V battery. NOTE: This unit is being replaced by the SB79C that includes an additional patch cord to connect a CD or MP3 player to the Silent Brass System.

Smaller, lighter and more portable

The redesigned Silent Brass module is smaller than a cassette tape and weighs about as much. It fits easily into a shirt pocket and can be attached to the player's belt, if desired. This makes the new Silent Brass system much more portable and convenient.

Improved sound

The sound from this next generation system has been greatly improved over the previous generation. Hiss has been greatly reduced, allowing the player to hear more of himself and less noise.

Simplified controls and sleeker look

The new module has only a volume knob and an echo switch, eliminating the unneeded extra features and making it even more affordable.

Aux In jack

This jack allows an external sound source to be combined with the signal coming from the mute or microphone. The player can then play along with their favorite song in practice and performance settings and put the fun back in their practice sessions.

Input jack

The input jack allows a quick and easy connection to a Yamaha pickup mute for practice or to a Yamaha MC-7 instrument mic for performance.

Output/phones jack

The output/phones jack allows the Yamaha Silent Brass system to be connected to the included earphones for private practice, an external sound system for sound reproduction, or to a recording system for recording.

  • Aux in to play along with CDs or MP3s

I tried this out at our local Brook Mays music place, and was wowed by how quiet this thing is. Playing as loud as I could, i didnt disturb a soul in the room. When I put the headphones on, I found that the sound is a little bit "dead", as microphones of sorts do not pick up overtones very well. the reverb is also nice, but it doesnt work too great when staccatos and such are played. Talk about some nasty sounding echoes! I also wish this thing had an equalizer, to get better sound. but overall, it is great for what it is meant for- playing without disturbing others.

I find the SB79 system to be a helpful tool but I think it lacks in several areas, in particular if you try to fit a proper headset, because the power then is reduced significantly, as well as it uses lots of batteries. For my part I use 2-3 batteries per week. Also I have a problem with condensation in the silencer itself. I can live with the 'artificial' trumpet sound, as the system, after all, is only suitable for practising. Looking forward to the next generation (-:

Great for College!

By Dan H-bTzFt

from Chattanooga

I live in a very small dormitory, so I typically need to go to the auditorium on campus to practice. With Silent Brass, I can practice in my room anytime without disturbing my hallmates - this means that I ACTUALLY PRACTICE!Like any practice mute, Silent Brass will impede the airflow slightly and it will make a difference on the very high and very low notes. But, Silent Brass is a great buy for any serious high school or college trumpet player.

A

By Bobby D

from NJ

I really like the features of this system. It allows me to silently warm up just prior to performance. I am able to practice while keeping an eye on my young children without disturbing them. I was disappointed however in the sound when plugged into a sound system. The sound was a bit blurry and distorts. It sounded like I was trying to blast out in Sachmo style. If you use it for practice and warm-up only, this product is perfect.

Great, but not as quiet as i thought

By BachBoy

from ohio

Ok, I got the silent brass, its cool, I love the echo and aux input. But its not as quiet as I imagined, people in other rooms can still hear me, not real loud, but from far away they can. From what I heard its not supposed to disturb anyone, and it doesnt that much, but it still does somewhat. Unless I set it up wrong.

Greatest Practice Innovation

I wish this type of device was available years ago. I could have practiced so much more and anytime I wanted to.

Practice extender

By TijuanaT

from Wisconsin

It allows me to practice anytime, anywhere without bothering your family or neighborhood. It adds a little weight to the horn and a little resistance. But overall it's well worth the money if you take your horn playing very seriously.

practice, quiet, happy parents!!!:)

By BCWS

from Bountiful utah

the best thing about this thing is, my parents would always make me practice before they got home, but now, i can practice any time i want. the only problem with it, is you cant hit high notes as well and you have to breathe much harder. i like the echo feature, it helps with low notes, and input, lets me play along with my jazz band, and practice, all i have to do is record our band playing in class on my ipod, then i plug in my ipod to the personal studio, and wham, i have my whole band with me. its really nice.

Quiet and Useful

By Piercing_Light

See all my reviews

It's not a dead silent mute, but you can only make about as much noise as someone playing their headphones a little too loud. I can practice while my in-laws are asleep! Only problem I have is as you ascend in register, it goes very flat. The echo is a nice feature, not the best, but it helps so that it doesn't sound dead. Nice product.
