This is a copper version of the traditional stop mute for horn. It's made by Tom Crown in the USA. The lacquered finish resists tarnish and the mute includes a leather strap. The small flared cap of the mute is threaded, and covers a very cleanly made bracket which holds the leather cord. This is a transposing mute, so the player must finger one half tone lower when the mute is inserted. Weight: 125g, 0.27 lb.
Additional mute caps in tulip shape or quick flare shape are available from Tom Crown.
