MERTENS MUTES

These handmade saxophone mutes are designed and created by myself. They are high quality and come in a variety of different colors. Alto mutes measure 2.75 inches in and Tenor mutes measure 3.25 inches in diameter. Handmade from wooden rings with velvet ribbon. Available in a variety of colors for Tenor and Alto saxophone.

Available for purchase at Meridian Winds and Etsy.

"The purpose of the mute is twofold: to absorb some of the higher overtones, giving the tone a more mellow character and lower the pitch of low C, B, and Bb in increasing degrees.  Use of the saxophone mute tends to equalize the resistance in the instrument, and makes certain notes easier to control when playing softly." 

- Larry Teal, "The Art of Saxophone Playing" -
