Deeply haunting and slightly hollow, the Jo-Ral Trumpet Bucket Mute provides a truly distinctive sound. Its soft, muffled tones add tremendous dimension and its unique straight shape allows for quicker transitions. Finished with a brass bottom, this mute offers a slightly warmer, almost dark sound. Made of the highest quality hand-spun aluminum, Jo-Ral TPT-4B Trumpet Bucket Mutes are designed and tested to perform evenly in all registers. Jo-Ral mutes also feature neoprene-enhanced composite cork pads that provide extra durability. The result is a more pliable cork that grips well and doesn’t dry out, become brittle or break off—so it lasts longer while easily accommodating fine adjustments for a perfect fit.
