There's a trick to putting on a bucket mute onto any trombone bell. My
friend, Lanny Marshall, showed me a quick and easy way to put on a
bucket. Grab one of the 3 thingie's that attach the mute of the bell
(that's higher edumacation fer ya), and align the other 2 onto the
bell. It works, but takes some practice. You'd almost have to SEE the
demonstration to understand. But grab one of 'em, and give it a try.
Hold by ONE, attach the other two. It works.
This is one of those "a picture is worth a 1000 words" kind of things.
Lanny, by the way, was lead trombonist with the famed Air Force
Falconaires for over 20 years. And a heck of a good guy!
