Stupid question but gotta be asked, do you think it would be detrimental to use a alternative mpc/reed than your regular mpc/reed set up on the silencer ?
Why would you?

Because then i could leave it my cab and practice while on ranks
Ah! All is revealed.
I'm sure it wouldn't hurt but I guess I'd try to find the closest match to my usual set up.

give it another go - you can't cheat with it:), and after a couple of weeks 10 mins a day, you should be making some decent progress!:thumb:
Nah....donated it to the forum! Anything that suppresses my noise has to go! Glad it works for some people though

allows worthwhile practice while stuck in traffic jams and, as such, well worth it...

Would this gizmo help with me failing to hit any note under a low c on tenor?

I suspect that rather depends on the reason for your failure. So it might.

Had tenor since Christmas, finding those low notes very tricky, maybe more time and patience is required......simple as that.

Might be that you have a leak.

Thomann are selling these for a lot less than Amazon in the UK - even with the €10 postage charge.

I just got mine from Thomann, but the instruction book and DVD are in German.
I've contacted Jazzlab to see if I can get the English version, but maybe it's better for non-German speakers to get it from a UK store.

An instruction book! Blooming heck! I never thought they would bother to supply one. Put your mpc in the end and off you go!
