Different to previous models, the SB1X 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 approximately 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 Bb, C, Eb and F horns. 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.
