Our straight mute is a mix between a 1930s Ray Robinson straight and a 1940s Shastock...with our own little twist. The base of the straight mute is removable!
The straight mute comes with 2 bases with the added option of a 3rd buzz base.
-The smaller base provides a classic Robinson/Shastock fiber sound.
-The larger base brightens the mute up changing the sound profile closer to a metal mute.
-Jazzer/Buzz base. This base is a hybrid of a 1920s wondertone and an AP&M Buzz mute. This unusual buzzy sound is created by the 4 thin plastic diaphrams located on the bottom of the mute.
