    Just thought I would tell everyone (that is interested in the sop!!) that I have recently bought Denis Wick Soprano Cornet Cup Mute and to date I am very pleased with it. Tuning is good as is sound. After using normal cornet cup mute for so long this is a god send!!
    I believe it has only come out and I heard about it on 4barsrest. Follow link for review!

    £25 well spent. Got mine from Band Supplies, prompt and as efficient as ever!

    I have a Peter Gane one, and it's OK BUT it does sound different if everyone else is playing wicks. If your cornets usually play the Humes & Berg fibre cups then it's ok but if (like my band) all your cornets play wick adjustables then it does stick out (Peter Gane ones cost £55!).

    Having only recently got my PG mute I'm having a really hard time justifying the expense of buying another one to my Wife! Had I known wicks were bringing one out (oh the benefit of hindsight) I would never have brought the PG, just got the Wick instead (there are tuning issues with the PG I've noticed).
