The all new Yamaha silent Brass system (SB7X) for trumpet and cornet offers many improvements over the previous model SB7-9 which has been a very popular mute system for many years.
Yamaha have downsized the mute and is now even a more light-weighted mute: The unique, compact mute offers superb muting effect and natural playability with excellent intonation.
• Comfortable, realistic timbre achieved by Yamaha’s unique Brass Resonance Modeling ™
This exclusive technology uses modeling to correct the sound when played with the Pickup Mute™ to match
the resonant characteristics of a brass instrument played without a mute. The resulting sound has a
comfortable resonance that reduces the stress often experienced when playing with a mute.
Easy To Attach And Remove
New mutes are designed to attach and remove smoothly and easily.
Fits Neatly Inside the Bell
A new compact design now lets you put your instrument in its case with the mute in the bell.
* Depending upon instrument type and model it may not fit in some cases. Please check the Compatible Chart for more information.
So Light You’ll Forget Its In Your Horn
Significantly lighter than previous models, these new mutes offer better instrument balance when in the bell and greatly reduce stress when playing.
Specially Designed Mini Microphone
Microphone performance, its mounting position, and the surrounding mute design were all optimized to bring out the full potential of Brass Resonance Modeling.
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.
Brass Resonance Modeling™
The SILENT Brass™ features Yamaha’s unique technology, which uses the modeling of non-muted brass instruments to correct your instrument’s tone when the Pickup Mute™ is in place. The resulting sound is so realistic, it’s hard to tell whether the instrument is muted, or not.
The SILENT Brass™ Offers More Enjoyment
Connect the output from an audio player, smartphone, etc. to the AUX IN jack on the Personal Studio™ and enjoy playing along with your favorite recordings or “minus one” practice aids. The PHONES jack can also be used as an output jack for recording what you play.
* Do not use the AUX IN jack when using the PHONES jack as an output jack.
* Cable sold separately.
