    Anybody in tMP land know where I can get a Bremner ssshhh cornet practice mute from?
    I am told they are pretty popular in Australia where they come from but I can't seem to find anybody selling them over here.
    I had a go on one the other night and was really impressed.

    They are great mutes. Able to be used in the house at 10pm while the kids are asleep - you can fully 'blast' without the horrible tuning and back pressure problems you get in other mutes. This mute played a big part in my return to banding form after a 16 year absence.

    Ideal also for those situations where you need to play pp or ppp in a band situation. I played the last 20 bars of 'Volcano' at the Swiss Open last year and played a good forte through the mute to replicate p - pp. Great for some parts of 'English Heritage' too!

    Apart from that Trevor and Betty Bremner are great people, and he is one of the finest cornet players in the world.

    I see a few available on eBay, but they're all in the USA. Maybe take a look to see if they would ship to UK...?

    Here's the list.

    The site reference I gave you has the option to ship to "the rest of the world" - and they are cheap enough for a new one.

    You can buy directly from the website here (in US $ though!)

    Agreed. I've bought 2 cornet Sssshmutes and 1 flugel Ssssshmute from 4BR Down Under and not only was the price very reasonable (I think all in worked out at £25 for a cornet mute) but the it arrived in about a week.

    Also very highly recommended!

    Thanks for all the replies. Had a look on Band supplies website and found it, so have put in my order. It didn't come up in a google search for some reason - perhaps they need to update their meta tags.

    Yep, I bought both of mine from Band Supplies, and both times they arrived the following day. One of the two, I think I ordered at about 4pm, which was pretty impressive.
  12. Surely Packers have them?
