French Horn MUTE NOOSES

Every horn player knows how difficult it can be to get the leather strap of a stopping mute around his wrist while playing and how quickly the strap can get twisted at the most inopportune time.  The Mute Noose is constructed for quick and easy grabbing and will not twist and turn on your wrist.

These nifty little devices for French horn stopping mutes were designed by Pittsburgh Symphony violist Stephanie Tretick for the members of the Pittsburgh Symphony horn section. Nooses come in a multitude of colors and also glow in the dark and are made from heavy-duty braided plastic.  When ordering, please specify a desired color combination in the "special instructions" box of your shopping cart.
