Silencers effectiveness
« on: June 05, 2020, 03:59:38 pm »
I would like to know (and possibly, to hear) how much you can actually distinguish the airy tones you are playing when using the silencers.
I only saw them used in the David Ramos review and in that quick demonstration I felt like all the notes were pretty much alike.

I guess it's not the case otherwise it would be just as useful as playing the fingerings without blowing at all, but I'm still interested in how well that does work, especially for what matters the switching of octaves. Is the tone consistent between one and the other whilst using the silencers?

Many thanks to whomever may help.

Hey Spattolo. It’s me Again.
Yes the airy sound is very perceptive for the one that’s playing But not really to anybody else around you. So it is better than just fingering the song but still not as good as actually playing. So it does help with practice. :)
