The revolutionary design of the new SILENT Brass defies convention and allows players to conveniently store the mute in the bell of their instrument making this innovative mute an essential part of a brass musician’s equipment.
Convenience is not the only benefit of the new design. The overall balance has been improved and allows players to adopt their natural playing posture. In a remarkably lightweight, compact unit, the new SILENT Brass mute achieves outstanding sound reduction whilst retaining stable pitch over a wide range, also ensuring optimum air flow.
The ‘AUX IN’ mini jack allows players to connect their portable audio players or smart phone so that they are able to play along with a full accompaniment.
Review by Jim Pullen - Pro Brass Player
"It seems Yamaha have taken into consideration most of the issues faced with using the old system. The mute itself is ultra light, flush with the bell and doesn't have the tendency to fall out like the last. The external sound from the mute is, as you'd expect is pretty minimal, the sound coming through the headphones is excellent, with two reverb settings you can be in a dry room or a concert hall, great fun!
Best of all, the MP3 input allowed me to play along with the real app on my smartphone, which makes the SB7X02 more of an essential addition to my trumpet case than just an "invisibility cloak"

I had a Yamaha Silent Violin for many years and this is another amazing bit of kit! My neighbours love it because they can\'t hear me. I live in a small flat and the cornet is not an easy instrument to learn to play if you are surrounded by other flats. I\'ve tried a traditional mute but there\'s still way too much volume and also a lot of back pressure. Now I can blow to my heart\'s content - at 3 in the afternoon or 3 in the morning. The tone is exceptional and the ability to plug in another sound source is a real luxury.
Meets my requirements for basic skills work without disturbing my string - playing neighbours who view the brass section as the musical equivalent of heresy!
I am on shift work, and with the silent brass SB7X I can practice at any time of the day (or night) and the sound is as close to natural as I have ever heard. It works for me!!
Product recommended to me and surpassed expectations.
It provides a huge reduction in volume (my wife was particularly impressed when she could not hear my playing in the other room!) without significantly affecting the playing of the instrument. By using headphones it sounds like I am playing normally without the mute and being able to hear backing tracks to play along to is a bonus.
Great. A huge improvement on the previous model. Whilst it still doesn't stop all sounds, it halved it. Which is great for practice. The tone, when played through decent headphones is good too.
