Pickup Mute and Personal Studio for French Horn, with Brass Resonance Modeling.
The Pickup Mute combines a high-performance mute with an internal microphone to pickup sound. Significantly smaller and lighter than previous versions, the mute offers superior muting performance, delivers excellent intonation over a wide pitch range, and natural playability. A new compact design now lets you put your instrument in its case with the mute in the bell.
The SILENT Brass features Yamaha's unique technology, which uses the modeling of non-muted brass instruments to correct your instrument's tone when the Pickup Mute is in place. The resulting sound is so realistic, it's hard to tell whether the instrument is muted, or not.
Connect the output from an audio player, smartphone, etc. to the AUX IN jack on the Personal Studio and enjoy playing along with your favourite recordings or minus one practice aids. The PHONES jack can also be used as an output jack for recording what you play.
