The Yamaha SB2X Silent Brass System offers a high-performance mute with an internal microphone. The mute features some new improvements that help it meet the needs of today's market. The disassembled body is a great advantage for travelling musicians as you can stack the halves together for a compact size. Although the mute is now much smaller and lighter, improving balance when playing, the muting efficiency is not disadvantaged. An adjustable rod allows players to reposition the mute head so they can achieve their desired pitch resonance and playing feel. Thanks to this new feature the mute can be used with a variety of bell sizes.
Different to previous models, the SB2X silent mute is smaller in size and lighter, improving its balance during play. These changes haven't disadvantaged the accessory as it is still offers the same muting efficiency and pitch stability over a wide range and unrestricted breath flow. The design now also disassembles into a compact size that is much easier to store, a great feature for travelling musicians. To achieve a desired pitch resonance and playing feel, Yamaha has added an adjustable rod to enable players to reposition the mute head. This also allows players to use the accessory with a variety of bell sizes. The mute comes with unique Yamaha technology to correct your instrument's tone when in place. To do this Yamaha has used the modelling of non-muted brass instruments. Now players can connect to smartphones or portable audio players to play along with their favourite tunes.
