SB3X-2 – Yamaha Silent Brass for French Horn
Featuring Yamaha’s exclusive Brass Resonance Modeling!
You want to play when and as you like, without being confined to time or place… Yamaha’s next generation SILENT Brass for French Horn makes it happen. The new SILENT Brass for French Horn consists of a smaller, lighter, freer blowing Pickup Mute™, and the Personal Studio™, which features Yamaha’s exclusive Brass Resonance Modeling™. Used together, the two deliver the natural acoustic tone you hear when playing without a mute, making it feel as though you are playing mute free.
How Does it Compare to the Previous Silent Brass for French Horn?
Their are 2 key component upgrades to the Yamaha Silent Brass for French Horn. The redesigned Pickup Mute and the Brass Resonance Modeling:
Improved Pickup Mute
The Pickup Mute combines a high-performance mute with an internal microphone to pickup sound. Significantly smaller and lighter than previous versions, the mute offers superior muting performance, delivers excellent intonation over a wide pitch range, and natural playability.
* Please note that the Pickup Mute may not fit some instruments with significantly different bell shapes or bell diameters. Please check before purchasing.
Brass Resonance Modeling
The SILENT Brass features this unique Yamaha technology which uses the modeling of non-muted brass instruments to correct your instrument’s tone when the Pickup Mute is in place. The resulting sound is so realistic, it’s hard to tell whether or not the instrument is muted.
The French Horn World’s Best Practice Tool!
The benefits of the Yamaha Silent Brass for French Horn system are many. The mute truly is one of the best performance Practice Mutes ever made eliminating a HUGE amount of the sound acoustically but without negatively impacting the “feel” of the French Horn. For practice though, you can easily hear your true sound with Yamaha’s Brass Resonance Modeling system. Furthermore, you can line in music to play along with using portable audio players or smart phones with audio playback capability, you can play along with your favorite tunes or practice with popular “minus-one” backing tracks.
* Stereo mini-to-mini cable sold separately.
