The Yamaha PM5X allows the trombone player to be able to practise in near silence but offers the same level of resistance to normal playing. With a lightweight design, easiness to take in and out, ergonomic storing capabilities, this mute has it all. It also works great with the Yamaha SB-5X Silent Brass System.

Yamaha have improved just about every aspect of the new pickup mute, replacing the old model with a stylish and lightweight device. The mute is much easier to attach with its grooved outline, making it easy to push in and grab back out. The mute fits right inside the bell of the instrument. This has two benefits: it won?t slip out the end of the instrument and it pushes the weight of the mute closer to your body making it easier to use for a long time. When not using the instrument, the mute can easily be stored inside the instrument and will still fit in most conventional cases. Yamaha have also gone to a lot of effort to make the mute as lightweight as possible, making it so that it will feel like there is no mute in at all whilst playing.
With the new microphone, this miniature microphone has been modified to better equip itself for the range in dynamics and overtones produced by a brass instrument. Its new placement also means that the resonance technology can be fully optimised. This microphone works great with the Yamaha Silent Brass Kit for Trombone
