Welcome to Bremner Music - Home of the sshhmute

Is your performance being marred by the way you practice?

Needing to practice at odd times and in odd places over the years (and the absence of a suitable mute) was the reason Trevor Bremner designed the sshhmute.

In development over several years in his New Plymouth workshop, the sshhmute is at long last in full commercial production and has been successfully launched to answer a market need for an effective mute in a price range to suit budding musicians and professionals alike.

The sshhmute is made from lightweight, yet hard-wearing, ABS plastic with no parts to break or fall off and it is sold in a convenient soft fabric carry bag.

Perhaps one of the primary benefits of the sshhMute design is the very small amount of back-pressure it creates. This allows for better air supply, while still opening and developing the throat muscles. The mute also remains in tune and faithfully accurate throughout the entire range.

KEVIN JOUGHIN - SOUTH AUSTRALIA CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS 2005 

I have been utilising the sshhmute for over 2 years now and I practice with the mute at home most nights and wouldn't practice without it. I must say that is has definitely contributed to improving my sound and also the projection of sound. It makes you listen a great deal more and when playing with the mute at band practice or a concert/contest it has noticeably helped me pitch notes more accurately than in previous years. Less grace notes!!! This also contributes to more confidence in your playing ability and I must add that my recent solo successes have been largely due to practicing with the mute. I doesn't disrupt other family members when practicing and I have noted that a lot more of our cornet players in K & N are utilising this mute.
