Soprano mute?

hello everyone, my professor asked me a question and i thought i would run it through you guys. he is playing soprano sax for a chamber piece. it is a YAS-475, selmer c*. the tells me that it is too whinny for the piece that we are playing. he suggested that he would make a soprano mute, like an alto one but for soprano. so my questions are : 1. with what materials and how would he want to go about making it? 2. is there any way to make it less whinny without changing the set-up, he doesn't want to change them. thanks for you help!!
