   Here you will find photos of mutes, and  accessories, as well as vintage catalog pages and advertisements relating to mutes.


   Most of the photos are of specimens in the collection.  In the near future we will be  adding detailed captions for most photos. Those items which are not in the collection will be denoted so at that time as “Photo Only”.

At present we are in search of a more flexible Photo Gallery that allows for attachment of text and sound.  If you can recommend one, please contact the webmaster at

   We are considering including sound files in the future for each mute in the collection.


    At this point, less than a third of the collection has been posted here

- there is MUCH MUCH more to come!
