Make a mute for your tenor trombone for only dollars.
Thanks to bonesmarsh on the trombone forum for the idea.
- 1-quart international delight coffee creamer bottle
- shelf paper
- duct tape or similar
Step 1: Step 1
Buy an International Delight coffee creamer bottle. Once you empty or use the contents, take off the cap and wrapper.
Step 2: Step 2
Cut a 7 x 3.25 rectangle of shelf paper.
Step 3: Step 3
Fold the shelf paper into a strip that is about an inch wide.
Step 4: Step 4
Wrap the strip of shelf paper tightly around the top of the bottle and secure it with tape.
Step 5: Step 5
Using a hammer and nail, punch 2 holes in the side of the mute. These holes will let air out.
Step 6: Step 6
Place your mute in the bell of your trombone and play!
Add more shelf paper and increase the size of the holes if you want to.
