The Mute Company was founded by David Riggs in the spring of 2022 in the first year of his master’s program at the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati. With help from the CCM trumpet studio as prototype testers, development and advancement in designs progressed quickly with a lot of feedback.
David has been 3D printing since he was in high school, with a background in engineering, mathematics, and music performance, he is well qualified as the designer and printer of products.
The Mute Company's plastic mutes are printed in a plastic known as PETG, the formal name is Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol, or as they like to just call it, PETG. The specific plastic we use has been 100% recycled in Columbus, Ohio making our mutes not only cost-effective but also a great environmentally-friendly option for musicians. PETG is food-safe, chemical resistant, strong, and slightly flexible making it perfect for mutes.
