[Trombone-l] Compact Practice Mute

The smallest, and in my opinion the best, practice mute is the Best Brass
mute. My tenor mute is small enough to remain in the bell while in the
case. Tuning is very good.

I also have a Best Brass mute for my bass, but it has some electronics like
a metronome and a headphone jack that increases its length. It can't be
stored in the bell.
