    Hi everybody, I'm just wandering if Peter Gane Mutes are still widely available as I remember they stopped producing them a couple of years ago, but then started to build them again, but now I'm not sure if they still are!

    The reason I'm asking is I would like to have a Flugel Horn mute (if they actually make them)

    I already have a adjustable cup mute for cornet/trumpet and would love to have the same one for my Flugel.

    Any help would be welcome!

    Thanks
    Dewi

    It looks like 37 quid will get you a straight and 62 quid for a cup but its a non-adjustable type. I have one from just before they ceased production before. I guess they're made from the same materials now. It's OK, but I find it tends to make me sound a bit tinny - I know its a straight mute and I guess that's sort of the effect you would expect to get, but the difference in sound between open and muted is greater that say the difference with a horn or cornet. (Well it makes sense to me anyway!).

    That said, it is far and away the best straight mute I've tried for flugel, much better IMO than the equivalent Wick.

    same sound/quality as the Peter Gane mutes, actually there're made because they stopped producing. a lot of championship bands in holland/belgium use these mutes, and I think with the shipping costs it may be even cheaper than the 62 mentioned above. cup is adjustable

    edit: I just read the mutes are for sale in Great Britait too

    You could always save yourself some money by not bothering with the flugel, go back to cornet and move to West Yorkhire :wink:
