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?
