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.

    A Very Good Mute

    This mute is a very good mute. It is easy to slide on and off. The only pad this is that the sound isn't as muted as some mutes.

    A Good Mute

    I've used this mute for years and love it. It almost never leaves my instrument. I've used this mute in solo, chamber music, and orchestral settings and have never had a problem with it. It s very easy to use as it does just slide on and off the bridge which has been very helpful when I've had a split second to take it off. (Unlike the Tourte mute that I had previously used which I sometimes would pull off the instrument if I was in a hurry.) I like this mute mainly because of it allows me economy of motion. One swipe of my index finger and it's on; one swipe again and it's off. It also mutes the sound enough to change the tone color, which is the main thing needed for mutes. ... (See Full Review)
