I remember your comments from before about the Silent Brass. Actually, I'm very curious to see the new version which I'll be trying out next week. The fellow here in town that got one just ordered it last week and was told it was the newly redesigned version. He claims it isn't heavy at all, which was one of your complaints last time. He also has a really good set of headphones but to be honest, I'm more concerned about the sound dampening to response dampening ratio. Every practice mute I've ever played had seriously detrimental effects on the response of the tuba. I'm hoping the new Silent Brass is better, I know my wife would really LOVE not to listen to me play the Bell Scales on her day off! Anyhow, if anyone is interested I'll post to the BBS my thoughts about the Silent Brass next week after I try it.
