Hawkins French Horn Stopping Mute


Certain pieces are nearly impossible to play as the composer intended. The low fortissimo C# in the last movement of Tchaikovsky’s 6th Symphony is a famous excerpt that really benefits from some external assistance.

Our stopping mute provides this assistance, with perfect tuning and an edgy sound that more accurately mimics the human hand-stopped sound than brass stopping mutes can, even at full volume and extreme ranges.
