I have to agree. I don't have one. I hope I never have to buy one. The
younger guys seem to be buying these awful things. They just don't sound
like a bucket mute. I'm still using my hand made Peter Gane (London) mutes.
Beautiful to play. In tune. Feel nice. Sound nice. Well made to last a
lifetime if you treat them right. The bucket fits inside the bell. None of
those awful clips to fiddle with. Are these mutes still available?
