Makes practice perfect On the road or at home, Yamaha’s revolutionary Silent Brass™ system lets you practice wherever and whenever you want.
The Yamaha Silent Brass™ system is available for Cornet, Piccolo Trumpet, Trumpet, Flugelhorn, Trombone, Bass Trombone, Alto Trombone, French Horn, Euphonium and Tuba.
The lightweight, active muting system is hardly noticeable in use, and with the newly-designed, pocket-sized Personal Studio, you can mix in audio accompaniments from CD and MP3 players. Built-in digital effects allow reverb to be added to re-create the ambience of a live performance through headphones. For perfection in practice, the new Yamaha Silent Brass™ system is unrivalled.
