The Balu Large Bell Series French Horn Straight Mutes are an excellent choice for the player searching for a mute with resonance. The Balu Large French Horn Mutes feature a fiberglass shell construction with a high-quality veneer wrap covered in seven coats of protective lacquer for a sleek finish. The Balu Mute design produces a clear and highly-resonant sound plus an inside brass tip to protect the mute from becoming deformed by normal wear and tear. In November 2002, Ion Balu, M.M., established Balu Mutes. In collaboration of top musicians and artists, Balu Mutes are able to provide some of the world’s best mutes, including a Horn practice mute with negligible air resistance. Balu Mutes manufacturers mutes for Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium and Tuba.
