Denis Wick DW5582 Trombone Travel Mute

Trombones are currently running at an all-time high in the instrument popularity stakes, so ‘bone mutes – particularly travel mutes, are well up on the accessories wanted list. The DW5582 is the latest in a long line of tried and trusted quality mutes from the Denis Wick stable, but calling this red beauty a Travel mute doesn’t quite cover the whole story, as the DW5582 also functions perfectly as a warm up mute and a practice mute. We used to use a wooden Maslet, but in recent years have moved on to a Best Brass aluminium model (made in Japan). While we were always happy with the Best Brass, slotting in the Denis Wick model was a revelation. OK, it’s slightly heavier than our Best Brass, but it fits the bell perfectly, has a flawless finish and it’s airtight – in fact, it’s a superb bit of engineered design. With a constant sound throughout and consistent resistance across the full range and exceptional dampening properties, this is one accessory that should always be in your travel bag. And it’s the best bit of ’bone kit out there if you don’t want to wake the world – guaranteed.
