I purchased this as a spiritual successor to the one and only straight mute I’ve used since about 2004 or 2005 (also a Balu). I was not disappointed. These still sound just as beautiful as they look. As I said in a review for another mute I purchased alongside this one, this mute would be perfect for all muted passages throughout the repertoire. However if I had to choose one area it shines in particular, it would be soft lyrical muted passages.
Awesome mute! Beautiful to look at and sounds great. I love ordering from Pope music because I know I will get the product quickly.
