Gig bags for trumpet are convenient, but most of them don't have a compartment for mutes. This one does. Jazz gigs, orchestral gigs, even some marching gigs require a mute for some passages. "Elliott! Where's your mute!? It's part of your instrument! Knucklehead!" my bandleader said on several occasions. The Gator GL-TRUMPET-MUTE is the solution. It has all of the protection of other gig bags, and the comfort grip handle, but has room for mutes and extra mouthpieces so you won't get yelled at.
