Dear Community,

anyone ever heard of a "torpedo mute"? I never saw one, but it was mentioned in a score I recently got, from the 60s/70s.
There's also use of wawa and straight, so I figure it needs to be something cup or plunger-ish, but maybe someone knows more?

Thanks so much!

I found two references on the web:
https://collections.ed.ac.uk/mimed/record/50220
https://www.trumpetherald.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1447482

My guess is that it's similar to a pixie mute with a plunger.

Gary.
