Questions & Answers
Question: Can this be used stand alone without the Personal Studio? Thanks, Christine
Hi Christine, thank you for your enquiry. The PMX Series Silent Brass Pickup Mutes aren't designed for use without the SBX2 Personal Studio. If you don't already have an SBX2, we'd advise choosing the SB7X Silent Brass Kit for Trumpet and Cornet - this includes both the mute and Personal Studio:
Question: The spec states that the pick up mic is a condenser microphone, does the pick up module require battery power or phantom power? Thanks!
Thank you for your message.
Yes. This mute requires the power pack that is included in the Silent Brass system. Please look up Yamaha SB7X. Related product is below.
