Combine the STX-2 Personal Studio with the PM3X Mute and you get the all new SB3X-2 - 3rd generation Silent Brass System for French Horn.

Yamaha’s next generation SILENT Brass delivers greater playing enjoyment, anytime, anywhere.

The new SILENT Brass consists of a smaller, lighter, free blowing Pickup Mute™, and the Personal Studio™, which features Yamaha’s exclusive Brass Resonance Modeling™.

Used together, the two deliver the natural acoustic tone you hear when playing without a mute, making it feel as though you are playing mute-free.

(2-3/4"W x 3/4"D x 3-7/8"H)

Weight 71g (2.5oz) without batteries

This unit is small enough to fit easily into your shirt pocket,
or be attached to your belt.
This makes the new it very portable and convenient.


Improved Sound

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.

1. Eliminate the “Mute” Sound

Digital processing applied to the sound received by the mute’s
microphone effectively cancels the sonic characteristics of the mute.


2. Add Ambience

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.

3. Adjust Left/Right Balance

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.

Aux In Jack

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.

Mute In Jack - The mute "input" jack allows a quick and easy connection to any of the 6 new Silent Brass Mutes.

Phones Jack - The headphone "output" jack allows the Silent Brass system to be connected to earphones for private practice, an external sound system for sound reproduction, or to a recording system for public performance and recording.
