Easily transition from smooth and mellow to edgy ‘zing’. This mute is incredibly responsive.
Internal geometric features eliminate standing wave reflection – improving playability and tuning across the range.
The twisted cork design reduces the lateral load on the corks when inserting the mute. These corks will not let you down.
We need choices. When a composer asks for you to play con sordini, we need to understand the context. What is the music saying at this point? Is it an echo effect, a distant call, or just a change of timbre for artistic or blending purposes. No single mute can effectively achieve all of these requirements. A fortissimo metal mute will conjure an entirely different emotion compared with, at the opposite end of the sonic spectrum, a soft fibre or wood mute. There’s not much in the middle ground, between metal and wood. Until now.
The Hawkins straight mute dominates this middle ground. It has a beautifully sonorous, rounded quality when played tenderly, and a zingy edge when pushed harder. It’s a truly versatile addition to your mute arsenal.
Apart from the flexible sound, this mute never has an off day. Patent-applied-for technology all but eliminates standing wave reflections, which can go back up the instrument resulting in certain notes not focusing. This makes it easier to play, easier to keep in tune, and easier to justify owning!
