Yamaha SB1X Silent Brass Tuba Mute


Yamaha SB1X Silent Brass Tuba Mute


Pickup Mute™ - The Pickup Mute combines a high-performance mute with an internal microphone to pickup sound.

Lightweight and Compact - The new SILENT Brass Pickup Mute is designed to be significantly smaller and lighter than previous models to improve the balance when playing, yet it offers approximately the same muting efficiency along with stable pitch over a wide range and unrestricted breath flow.

Adjustable Pitch and Playing Feel - An adjustable rod allows the position of the mute head to be raised or lowered inside the bell while playing. This gives you the ability to customize the feel and the pitch to find the perfect fit for your own instrument and playing style. In addition, this allows the mute to be adjusted for a wide range of bell sizes, making the same tuba mute usable with with Bb, C, Eb, and F horns.

Disassemble to Compact Size - The disassembled mute body halves can be stacked for compact storage.

* Yamaha tubas will not fit in the supplied hard case with the tuba mute installed.
*The instrument may fit in roomy soft cases from some manufacturers with the mute installed. Please confirm the fitting independently.
* Do not stand the instrument on its bell when the mute is installed.

Brass Resonance Modeling™ - The SILENT Brass features this unique Yamaha technology which uses the modeling of non-muted brass instruments to correct your instrument’s tone when the Pickup Mute is in place. The resulting sound is so realistic, it’s hard to tell whether or not the instrument is muted.

External Device Input for Enjoyable, Effective Practice - By connecting to portable audio players or smart phones with audio playback capability, you can play along with your favorite tunes or practice with popular "minus-one" backing tracks.

*Stereo mini-to-mini cable sold separately.
