Mr. Willie Berg founded Humes and Berg in 1935. A struggling musician working in Chicago, he would go to all the clubs in the area and sell the band members valve oil, reeds, cymbals, and many other supplies out of a bag he carried with him. His inspiration came from Glenn Miller, who encouraged Willie to make mutes for brass instruments so that he could blend the brass section. This led to the development of the Stonelined Mute.
With mutes distributed in nearly 50 coutries worldwide, Humes and Berg provides a quality product for your perfect performance - designed with durability and innovation at a fair price.
