Aluminum Straight

All of our aluminum mutes are hand-made using hand-spun aluminum. Unlike machine-spun aluminum the hand spinning process creates a higher density aluminum that is extra responsive giving the Denis Wick straight mutes their signature sound. The purposefully designed shape creates perfect intonation and helps increase projection. All of this is held in the instrument by using the finest all natural cork that is soft to the touch but durable enough to last for years.

Wooden Straight

Wooden mutes are used for their warmer muted sound but can often be expensive and easy to break. Denis Wick wooden mutes are made by wrapping a birch-ply facing over a vulcanized fiber and finished with a marine ply bottom. This manufacturing technique reduces cost and increases durability while at the same time maintaining the beautifully warm muted sound that can only be achieved with a real wooden mute. The wooden French horn mute also comes with a tuning adjustment that slides for perfect tuning in any French horn.


The Denis Wick stopping mute provides a perfect semi-tone transposition every time. It is made from hand-spun aluminum and uses the best all natural cork available. For times when using your hand just won't work, the consistency and quality of the Wick stopping mute is the perfect alternative.


The practice mute that started it all. The Wick practice mute is designed to have as little resistance as possible while still providing near silent practice. It is made from hand-spun aluminum that is powder coated black for a long lasting finish.
