Best Brass: PotStop (Gestopft) mute - French Horn


PotStop (Gestopft) mute - French Horn


PotStopis a stop mute whose feature is truly one-of-a-kind. This

mute allows you to play stopping with a regular fingering on a score

and also can be used for F, Bb, F/Bb double horn, and now even for

Vienna horns!

When we first developed the Non-transposingstop mute back in

2003, the concept itself was actually for students. However, in reality,

it was surprisingly accepted mostly by professionals and currently used

in many major orchestras such as Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

Some features of the new model are based on and developed by taking

in dialogues with the players who actually uses the past Non

transposingmutes for years. The quality is further advanced and

exceeds the past models at any points, and here, PotStop is newly-born

as a truly professional stop mute.
