Ever have the urge to blow a few notes late in the evening when the kids have gone to bed and the Missus is watching CSI?
Practicing low G and high Bb late at night is not always conducive to domestic bliss so Iíve been thinking about cobbling together a practice mute for my horn. I know that any mute will have some affect on intonation, but thatís the least of my worries right now. Iím thinking about a do-it-yourself project, as my recreational playing doesnít warrant the investment in more equipment.
Iíve gone through the archives and found a few interesting suggestions, but Iím looking for some more input on ways to keep the noise down and domestic harmony up. So, any experiences or suggestions youíd like to share?
