    Bb bass megatone mouthpieces

    Euph/Trom Practice Mute

    I have used both the ssssh mute and the old Blue wallace mute. Im my humble opinion, the sssh! mute was much better. Having said that, it looks absolutely nothing like the new one, and the old one wasn't a bad mute!

    Most satisfying test piece you have played?

    It depends on what you mean by most satisfying... I remember the celebrations after winning the scottish with Music for the common man in 2000. However, if we are talking about rehearsal, home practice and performance, then I think that I would plumb for Vaughan Williams Variations for Brass...
