Don't Let Anything Get In The Way Of Your Practice Sessions With The Yamaha SB3X-2 Silent Brass System For French Horn

Pickup Mute and Personal Studio for French Horn (with Brass Resonance Modeling)

You want to play when and as you like, without being confined to time or place! Yamaha's next generation SILENT Brass makes it happen. The new SILENT Brass consists of a smaller, lighter, freer blowing Pickup Mute, and the Personal Studio, which features Yamaha's exclusive Brass Resonance Modeling. Used together, the two deliver the natural acoustic tone you hear when playing without a mute, making it feel as though you are playing mute free.

The Pickup Mute combines a high-performance mute with an internal microphone to pickup sound. Significantly smaller and lighter than previous versions, the mute offers superior muting performance, delivers excellent intonation over a wide pitch range, and natural playability. A new compact design now lets you put your instrument in its case with the mute in the bell. Please note that the Pickup Mute may not fit some instruments with significantly different bell shapes or bell diameters. Please check before purchasing.
