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.

"A commonly forgotten accessory to the string world is the mute. There are a variety of mutes available with even more varying qualities and prices. For the orchestra setting, I recommend something that can quickly be put on the bridge such as the Tourte, which I use. For practicing at home late at night, I use my ebony mute because it's heavier and dampens the volume more."
