This is the original tunable straight mute designed for horn by Eugene Rittich. It features a matte black finish that is easy to grip and has a solid wooden bottom plate featuring the classic horn pattern. This mute sets the standard for tone and performance that many other straight mutes seek to emulate. These mutes are the highest quality and can be found in top orchestras the world over.
“Rittich” mutes are hand-crafted in Canada by Dr. Caswell who was a a student of Eugen Rittich- they are produced in small batches and may take up to a year to be back in stock.
