Comments from customers who bought this item:
New and Improved Physical Design
Yamaha have improved just about every aspect of the new pickup mute, replacing the old model with a stylish and lightweight device. The mute is much easier to attach with its grooved outline, making it easy to push in and grab back out. The mute fits right inside the bell of the instrument. This has two benefits: it won?t slip out the end of the instrument and it pushes the weight of the mute closer to your body making it easier to use for a long time. When not using the instrument, the mute can easily be stored inside the instrument and will still fit in most conventional cases. Yamaha have also gone to a lot of effort to make the mute as lightweight as possible, making it so that it will feel like there is no mute in at all whilst playing.
Improved Resonance Technology
With the new microphone, this miniature microphone has been modified to better equip itself for the range in dynamics and overtones produced by a brass instrument. Its new placement also means that the resonance technology can be fully optimised. The Silent Brass unit takes best advantage of being able to listen to yourself while you practise in near silence. Digital technology has helped Yamaha develop an authentic acoustic environment where the instrument is still allowed to sing and improves on the quality of tone produced by its predecessor.
The Ins and Outs of Silent Brass
The Yamaha Silent Brass Unit allows for a number of scenarios. The headphone output lets the performer to simply hear the instrument as if in a practise room, and with the new mute design, it sounds great. So good in fact that it can be used to record yourself as you play. The Silent Brass also comes with an auxiliary input, which enables the performer to play along to favourite tracks while performing.
