Softone (Quietly) Rocks

By Don Lehnhoff

from Twin Cities, MN

Comments about Softone Bass Trombone Mute:

The Softone trombone mute is easy to carry, easy to throw on and off, and sounds old-school enough to let you ditch that cumbersome clamp-on bucket and derby It's not exactly a Swiss Army Mute—it's not at its best as a plunger or wah-wah, although it can sub for those in a pinch—but it's close enough for jazz. Although the Softone is sometimes touted as a practice mute, it's not really quiet enough for that by my definition. That said, when fully wrapped over the bell it makes a courteous warm-up mute before a rehearsal or gig. I currently play in a big band and the entire bone section uses the Softone. Given its compact versatility and price, no brass player's gig bag should be without one.

    Comments about Softone Bass Trombone Mute:

    Nothing against H&B - their mutes are the market leader - but I needed a solution for a bucket mute that doesn't clamp on the bell and risk scratches. The Jo-Ral in-bell bucket is wonderful, but the bass trombone version is huge and sometimes falls out under its own weight. I first bought the small Softone for my pea shooter. I was thoroughly impressed by the tone and the ease of use. It can stay on the bell while the horn is cased or be rolled up and tucked away in a bag. There aren't many charts that call for the bass trombone to be muted, but I was so impressed by the tenor model that I bought the large one to use as a practice mute on the bass trombone. I leave the bell of the tenor partially exposed when using it for a bucket, and enclose the bell with it when using it for practice or warming up for a gig. It is the perfect solution for my OCD that doesn't want to scratch my bells. The only potential drawback is the color - the small tenor is red with a black end and the large bass is royal blue with a navy end.
