I seached and searched but could not find any reviews of the SB59 Silent Brass System for Trombone. Well let me tell you my friends, stop reading and go buy it! I've been practicing now for 2 and half hours one room down from where my wife has been sleeping. And she's still sleeping! It can't believe it myself. She's not a heavy sleeper either. Really.

My horn with the pickup mute makes only a very soft muffled buzz. Much quieter than any normal horn mute. I have been hooking up pickup mute to my pc and using a computer based tuner, and multi-track recorder. And listening though the included headphones. Also I've been playing along with some mp3 music on the pc. Of course, you can plug the headphones directly into the control unit. It works perfect. There is a slight air restriction with the pickup mute attached. After 10min you will hardly notice it. Tone quality seems very good and realistic. It has an echo switch which adds a small bit of echo. The echo delay is not adjustable.

I got the SB59 so I wouldn't disturb my neighbors and family and I was not disappointed. And you won't be disappointed either!

I am really floored by how well this thing works. Can you tell?

Thanks for reading my review. Happy Practicing!

I bought the SB5-9 Silent Brass system for tenor trombone, its not so much silent as very quiet, enough so that i can practice my trombone during the afternoon whilst my 8 month old daughter sleeps peacefully and the wife watches TV undisturbed, for me this is a result. The mute offers little resistance and better than any other mute i have,i have quite a few, the sound through the headphones is acceptable, not quite the sound you would normally hear but close enough, remember the purpose of the mute is practice without upsetting people. I give it 8 out of 10, it would have got 10 but i think the onboard reverb could have been better, its ok.

The product works as advertised, which I can't really say for most products with as much marketing material as the Silent Brass System for Trombone. I have a slightly older revision of SBS and use it regularly in my apartment.

As another reviewer mentioned more emphatically, make sure you don't become dependent on the resistance and feedback from the mute. It definitely changes all of my trombones drastically versus an open horn, but I won't go as far as to dissuade owning one. Practicing with the mute is 100% improvement over no practice at all!

I don't really use the whole silent brass system. However, I love the mute alone.

Pros:

1. Plays more IN TUNE than other practice mutes I have tried! BIG plus!
2. Even sound throughout registers when practicing
3. Great for blasting low notes and playing loud!
4. Perfect for apartment practice and hotels-- barely audible
5. Great for concert warm-ups onstage

Cons:

1. Adds a little weight to the bell... however, the alternative mutes (such as best brass) don't play as well in tune!
2. Not sure that the whole system is needed... I think the mute is enough

Overall: Worth it!!!!

We bought the Silent Brass for our daughter who plays the Trombone. She was worried about people listening to her practice. She absolutely loves the fact that we can't hear her but she can hear herself! Works great!

What a great way to practice, I think this would encourage any young person to practice especially being able to play along with a recording.

The Silent Brass system is probably the coolest thing EVER. It actually works, and if you practice your instrument a lot, and have to worry about people getting annoyed with your practicing, I highly recommend getting a Silent Brass system. It is fantastic. It makes my horn almost silent, and the quality of sound that comes through the electronic box is very, very good. Additionally, if you are a French horn player who also plays mellophone in the marching season, the trombone system is the one to buy - it fits both instruments.

Professional player here, and this is a quality practice mute. Nearly silent and produces a good sound through the amp with minimal resistance on the embouchure. Because using the mute feels a little different from normal playing it should not be used all the time, but for those late night practice sessions this is an indispensable tool. Works great, I highly recommend this for all Trombone players.
