FAQ

Easy and quick set-up video to use the dividers:

 

1. What are the sizes of My Mutebag?

The dimensions for My Mutebag for Trombone are 15 in x 7 in x 13 in (L x W x H) while My Mutebag for Trumpet dimensions are 12 in x 5 in x 8 in (L x W x H). Since the bags are not made with a rigid material, the canvas will stretch some to accommodate your needs.

2. What can I fit in My Mutebag for Trombone?

You can fit three standard tenor trombone mutes side by side. For example, a straight mute, cup mute, and Harmon mute will fit. You can also get creative and fit a straight mute, bucket mute with Harmon on top of it, and cup mute side by side. Plungers, Solotone, and other narrow or soft mutes can be put on top at your discretion. Since the inside dividers are adjustable and removable, experiment with your bag to see what combination works best for your needs.

As there are variations in mute sizes, we cannot guarantee that your mutes will fit exactly as pictured, so please refer to the dimensions of the bag before purchasing. 

Some possible variations include the following: 

 tenor straight, cup, Harmon mute Tenor trombone straight, bucket, Harmon  Tenor trombone straight, bucket/Harmon on top, cup 

For bass trombone, My Mutebag for Trombone will fit two mutes side by side such as a straight mute and cup mute or straight mute and Harmon mute. If you want to fit more, you may be able to fit another mute such as a Harmon mute upside down on top of the cup. Use your discretion to find the best configuration for your needs but keep in mind the dimensions of My Mutebag will not allow three bass trombone mutes side by side.

As there are variations in mute sizes, we cannot guarantee that your mutes will fit exactly as pictured, so please refer to the dimensions of the bag before purchasing.

3. What can I fit in My Mutebag for Trumpet?

If using My Mutebag for Trumpet, you can fit three mutes side by side, such as cup, straight, and Harmon mutes. There is space to also fit a plunger on top of the other mutes or another small mute like a pixie mute. 

As there are variations in mute sizes, we cannot guarantee that your mutes will fit exactly as pictured, so please refer to the dimensions of the bag before purchasing. 

Some possible variations include the following: 

Trumpet cup, Harmon, straight  

4. What do you recommend for my music gear?

Since My Mutebag for Trombone is larger, we find this to be the best fit for hauling music gear. With dimensions of 15 in x 7 in x 13 in (L x W x H), it will fit an iPad, iPad clip, page turner, wireless mic set-up, cables, and more. You can remove the dividers to use the entire padded bag or keep one or both dividers in to make compartments for your gear. 

5. Can I fit a music or instrument stand in My Mutebag? What about music or method books?

With non-rigid sides, My Mutebag is somewhat flexible but will not accommodate a music stand or instrument stand and still zip completely shut. You may be able to fit a stand if you do not zip the bag shut all the way, but this is not guaranteed. Please keep in mind the dimensions when purchasing. 

As you can see in the picture below, My Mutebag for Trombone can easily accommodate music and method books in the front, outside pocket since it is 15 inches wide. My Mutebag for Trumpet with standard music fits as seen below. If you want to carry mutes, gear, and music, choose My Mutebag for Trombone.

6. Will My Mutebag for Trumpet fit an iPad?

Yes, the interior dimensions will allow an iPad smaller than 12 in x 8 in but you will need to adjust the dividers to accommodate it. This will result in the dividers being detached on one side of the bag as pictured below (iPad is behind the mutes).
