Maximum muting and clearest tone. Ideal for practicing in apartments of late at night (especially for difficult passages!) Best quality chrome-plated machine brass.

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.

    Heavy Mute

    This mute is very effective. It is heavy and care has to be taken placing the mute onto the violin bridge. But, when it is in place there is nearly no sound being projected. However, there is nough sound for the player to hear what is being played. ... (See Full Review)

    Great mute!

    I am 100-percent pleased with this mute! I live in a senior-adult apartment building, so I have to make sure I don't disturb my neighbors with my practicing. This mute does such a great job hat I am now able to practice anytime I want to. I no longer have to wait for neighbors to go out. Also, I have not experience any problems with the mute falling off the violin bridge. ... (See Full Review)
