New Improved Marrs Mutes!
Used in "Stuart Marrs on Elliott Carter" 
Four Custom Mutes

These unique timpani mutes were originally designed for "March" from Elliott Carter's Eight Pieces for Four Timpani. They attach to the counter-hoop of the timpani and are quickly, easily, and quietly flipped up or down with the timpani mallet. The mutes' sizes are proportional to a standard set of four timpani. Click on the animation to see the mutes in action.

Attach to counter hoop by strong magnets instead of Velcro stripping, with the advantage that you can easily change where you place them on your own drums or apply them quickly to any timpani without having to mess with the Velcro strips.
