The horn mute is often required in the musical repertory, a prime example being Gustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony. It is therefore important to have a mute that offers good sound, intonation and a secure feeling. With mutes, the conversation often turns to resistance, because resistance often influences sound and intonation. The challenge in developing a good mute is to find the optimal balance of these attributes. Through cooperation with well-known hornists it has been possible to build a mute that incorporates all of these qualities.
