Works great. Does the job. Stays in place and doesn't rattle when I play.

A friend gave me this mute as a gift over 10 years ago, and it's still going strong. It never rattles, never falls off, slips on and off silently, and is really great for very quick mute on/off places. I'm buying one for each of my students this year for holiday gifts!

Im using this magnetic mute on my viola, and I really like it because it stays in place, is quick and easy to use, and doesnt mute my strings by hugging them tightly. The only negative is that it does rattle a little when playing pure C string loudly, but the positives still make it worth using. I will be buying one for my violin also.

When performing a concerto or sonata that requires one, nothing beats the sound of a high-quality wooden mute. The trouble with these, though, is that they cannot rest behind the bridge when not in use as many rubber mutes do, thereby making them unusable for the quick mute transitions that occur in much of the chamber music and orchestral rep (think Bartok's "Concerto for Orchestra"). This Bech mute is unique from other rubber and plastic mutes in that it is magnetically anchored to the tailpiece when not in use. This prevents the "buzzing" that happens with other mutes as the legs work loose from the strings. It also keeps the mute located exactly where you left it, making a no-look con sordino as simple as possible.

Yes, the magnetic clip will still fit on a tailpiece with all 4 fine tuners without issue. I hope this helps!
