Trumpet Cup Mute

The cup mute is generally the second mute a student requires (The first being a straight mute). It's popular in band literature and jazz band literature.

As far as dynamics go, it's definitely one of the more dampening mutes, but doesn't change the timbre too much.

The mute we demonstrated in this video is the Humes and Berg Cup Mute, but you can find a cup mute in many other brands as well.

Remember, any time a mute is used, pull out the tuning slide, as the mute causes the pitch to be sharp.
