Sonic magazine tests the UpMute for trumpet

The German magazine Sonic Brass & Sax devotes a few pages to testing the UpMute trumpet studio mute in its Nov/Dec issue. Here you have the article and the translation of the conclusions for those of you who do not speak German.

Conclusion

So, to summarize: The “UpMute” studio mute is made of sturdy plastic and has everything you would expect from a studio mute: smooth, well-balanced sound and fine tuning, good volume damping, pleasant playing feel and authentic and light weight. It can be placed on the hood without any force and sits reliably. It is ideal as a studio mute, as well as for playing before or during a concert. The ingenious filter system allows for consistent blow resistance as well as complete tuning control throughout the range. The quality/price ratio is also correct! So we recommend you try it at the nearest specialized dealer!
