Rubber violin mute designed by violinist Fred Spector based on 45 years of experience with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. We found it very easy to use. Players can easily and quickly slide the mute up onto the bridge with very little effort and no extraneous noise. This is a great mute for orchestra players who need to be able to install their mute quickly and quietly. While not in use, the mute is held in place by the A and D strings with no buzzing or rattling.

What Should I Look For in a Mute?
All string players should have at least one mute, and there are three important factors to consider. First and foremost, ease of use. How quickly can the mute be put in place or removed? How important is this to you? Orchestral players sometimes only have one measure to install or remove a mute. Secondly, sound quality. The goal of the mute is to lower the volume only, not dampen the good quality of your instrument. Regarding overall sound quality, the degree to which a mute "rattles" when not in use but still on the strings between the bridge and tailpiece is important as well. Third is aesthetics. Truth be told, many players consider the importance of overall look and feel, trying a variety of mutes to find out what works and looks best on their instrument. Fortunately, mutes are not too expensive, so this is a relatively low cost endeavor.
