The sound from this "3rd generation" system has been greatly improved over the previous generations, by using the process called Brass Resonance Modeling. This utilizes three simultaneous processes to produce the realistic tone of the brass instrument. This unique technology by Yamaha uses the modeling of non-muted brass instruments to correct your instrument’s tone when the Pickup Mute is in place. With a combination of The Personal Studio and a Pickup Mute, the resulting sound is so realistic, it’s hard to tell whether the instrument is muted, or not.
Digital processing applied to the sound received by the mute’s
microphone effectively cancels the sonic characteristics of the mute.
Another digital process brings back the natural sound of the un-muted instrument, and adds the characteristics of the acoustic environment through which the sound travels before returning to the player’s ears, making it sound as if you are playing without a mute at all.
Digitally simulating how the sound returns to your ears—adjusting for the slight differences in volume, timbre, and delay between your left and right ears—and adding reverb constructs a virtual sound scape that makes it sound like you are playing in a large room or concert hall.
This jack allows an external sound source to be combined with the signal coming from the mute, such as an MP3 player, Tablet, Cell phone or CD Player. You can then play along with your favorite song in practice and performance settings, putting the fun back in your practice sessions.

The Pickup Mute™ combines a high-performance mute with an internal microphone to pickup sound.
Significantly smaller than previous versions, this mute offers superior muting performance,
New mutes are designed to attach and remove smoothly and easily.
Significantly Lighter - It is designed to be significantly smaller and lighter than previous models to improve the balance when playing, yet it offers approximately the same muting efficiency along with stable pitch over a wide range and unrestricted breath flow.
Specially Designed Mini Microphone - The new SILENT Brass Pickup Mute combines a high-performance mute with an internal microphone to capture your sound. The surrounding mute design were all optimized to bring out the full potential of Brass Resonance Modeling.
Disassembles to Compact Size - The disassembled mute body halves can be stacked for compact storage, and may even allow the mute to be stored inside the tuba bell while inside its case or gig bag!*
Adjustable Pitch and Playing Feel - An adjustable rod allows the position of the mute head to be raised or lowered inside the bell while playing. This gives you the ability to customize the feel and the pitch to find the perfect fit for your own instrument and playing style. In addition, this allows the mute to be adjusted for a wide range of bell sizes, making the same tuba mute usable with with Bb, C, Eb, and F horns.
