    I've got a Tom Crown Eb/D Trumpet cup mute that works fine on Soprano.
    You'll have to file the corks down a bit and I tend to stuff the "cup" with a cloth to blend with the adjustable Wick cup mutes that our section uses.

    Myatt supply them : http://www.myatt.co.uk

    I would recommend Peter Gane straight or cup mutes for good soprano mutes.

    Peter Gane and Tom Crown are your best bets. Finding them is one thing, playing in tune with them is another!

    Keep an eye out on ebay, I've just won this:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3706788946

    They seem to put one on every so often. I was bidding on one a few weeks ago but I was out bid at the last minute. Shipping to the UK is about $15.
