    I wonder why onlythe french horn one has the internal tuning baffle?
    This woul dhave been a hit for soprano players.
    A lever, to adjust the tuning....

    ... and when did they come on the market? I must admit that they look well made.

    I've had mine for a couple of years, so they have been around quite a while.
    I like it - a much softer sounding mute, yet still definitely muted.

    Speaking for the trumpet/cornet ones - the intonation is fantastic (in my opinion, better than the aluminium ones!). The tone is consistent throughout the range and works very well on each instrument I have tried it on so far.

    Every mute brings a new voice to the repertoire of the performer, I am one who really enjoys having the wooden mute sound in amongst my tonal pallette (and many of my colleagues and students agree and have purchased one having heard mine).
