The Wallace Collection Mutes
A comprehensive range of mutes for all brass instruments has been created to cater for the complex and diverse demands of performance – from practice to studio to concert, there’s a mute in The Wallace Collection series to suit your needs.
The Wallace Collection mutes are highest-quality precision-built and have undergone intense research and development to position them at the leading edge of brass instrument accessories.
All mutes are either lacquered or hard coated, enhancing both performance and visual appeal. As a testament to their peerless quality in all aspects of performance, the mutes are used by an impressive list of leading musicians across the world as well as The Wallace Collection themselves.
Years of careful design and refinement enables these mutes to maintain a constant centre and respond evenly throughout the range at every dynamic. The practice mutes, with adjustable resistance in certain versions, are the most innovative mutes available – the unique designs allow players to find and set the level of sound required. The compact practice mutes for lower brass (Flugel to Baritone) can be transported completely in the bell making them completely mobile and avoiding the need for additional baggage.
These impressive mutes will enhance any player’s performance. We are confident the range offers a mute to meet every demand.
Non-Toxic Valve Lubricant
Combining up-to-the-minute health and safety requirements with reliability and effectiveness, The Wallace Collection Non-Toxic Lubricant offers every performer a welcome reassurance that their health and their instrument’s functionality are in good hands.
From beginner to seasoned professional this lubricant provides lightning valve reaction reaction without any residual aroma, or unwelcome and unsafe side-effects.
Buzzaid for Bb/C Trumpet
An effective embouchure-strengthening device, concentrating on focusing the ‘buzz’ from mouthpiece and lips.
Used correctly it can aid range, tone, control, stamina and flexibility and reduce mouthpiece pressure. Using the Buzzaid allows you to use exactly the same playing position as playing on the instrument. The very low resistance is set at an optimum level for ease of use.
