Pros: Really quiets the sound
Cons: Intonation, resistance

These are pretty much the complaints on every practice mute - resistance and intonation. Being that the people at Jo-Ral understand how to make mutes project, I figured they would know how to kill projection as well, which they did! The sound is so quiet, and almost harmon-like. However, the resistance is considerable, and pitch is ALL OVER THE PLACE.

Forget about playing actual songs or anything fast on this - it's good for lip slurs (slow ones) and long tones. I pretty much use it only when I need to get some practice time in in the middle of the night. As a plus though, I've NEVER gotten complaints from neighbors in my apartment complex, so it succeeds in that regard :)
