    Going to Uni in September and to make me keep playing I think I should invest in a Silent Brass so I don't drive my flat mates mad!

    I'll buy one but just thought I'd check here to see if anyone could make me a better, cheaper offer?

    Hi Ellin ... I believe Rach (aka Sparkly) was looking for one of these a little while ago - not sure how she got on. You might want to ask her ... :D

    Be meeting you soon...

    silent brass for cornet

    hi Elin,

    I've got silent brass for cornet that i want to sell. I was going to put it up on ebay but havnt got round to it yet.
    It's about 2 years old, I've used it no more than a handful of times, and its still in the box, works fine.
    Don't know if you'd be interested, you may already have one by now!

    My email is gaylebussey@hotmail.com

    I opted for a handmade practise mute in the end, I highly recommend it. It really kills the sound and it feels more 'real' when you play than with a silent brass. It has a plug in it which gives high resistance so when you practise you are also having to play fully thus improving your tone at the same time........magic!
     
  17. :D I got myself a silent brass for cornet a few weeks ago, it was on sale at Yamaha for S$125 about 47GBP and I have to say it is the best thing I have bought in a long time, it means I can practice at anytime and make as many mistakes as I want without getting the oh my 'gosh' that was awful from my kids, I would recommend it to anyone who is limited for noise!!! :D

    it isnt exactley "silent" at all though...
    you can still hear everything. just quieter...
    its like an electric straight mute :)
     
  19. :? I agree with you Nadia, but as I said and I quote;

    "I would recommend it to anyone who is 'limited' for noise!"

    Anyone in an apartment or student accommodation would find it a bonus I'm sure, you have to get used to the earphones but I didn't find it a problem. If you have small children and get home from work with only enough time to put them to bed, you can still have your practice without waking them. I was actually practising in the kitchen last night whilst making the tea and the kids were watching tv in the lounge and they didn't even know, brilliant!!!

    :p :wink:
