Had a different style of silent mute that created an excessive amount of back pressure in my horn. I trust Trent's assessment of the stuff he sells and he and his staff have been advocates of Bremmer for a while so I decided to go with the Whisper mute.

One of our sons conducts a brass band here in New Zealand and recently had
all his cornet team using the mutes in a particular piece of music which
required very quiet playing. Also there are orchestral works such as Rite of
Spring which need these type of mutes.
However having said they are for on stage work there is no reason why they
still couldn't be used for practice. Just louder."
