Renuzit trumpet mute

Bill sent in this DIY trumpet muting device made from an air freshener, he writes – “I recently found out that Yamaha makes a “silent brass system” with a mute that nearly silences your brass instrument, and a microphone/amp/headphone circuit so you can hear yourself play. Wow, I thought, until I saw what people were making themselves….”Link.
