This is a good mute and will dampen the sound a lot better than other practice mutes. I used this mute in a studio apartment with extremely thin walls and never got noise complaints. If you need to be really soft this is the mute for you. On the contrary, this mute should be used with caution. You can't play as expressively or you will risk the mute falling off; mine fell right off the bridge and slightly scratched my instrument. Nothing that couldn't be fixed thank goodness. Evaluate for yourself. Personally I'd stick with the rubber practice mutes for this reason.

This is a great practice mute if, using a chisel or some kind of wedge and hammer, you separate the legs a little to make it fit securely on your bridge. You want it secure since it's heavy and could damage your cello if it falls off. It won't leave black marks on your bridge, like the rubber practice mute will after awhile, and it's more effective.

This is in response to the reviewer below. Most bridges are simply too thick for it. This mute is special: it's different from other mutes. The mute isn't supposed to fit the way other's do: you have to push down pretty hard for it to stay. Having said that, it works on my bridge. If it does work, this mute can be INCREDIBLE. It makes a really awesomely small sound...great for some pieces out there that require a totally muted sound.

The mute DOES NOT FIT THE BRIDGE! and my cello has a very thin bridge it's not even a thick bridge like other cellos have. The mute looks great is metal and very heavy i thought would work great but it didn't!! the moment i try to fit it on the bridge it barely enter the first inch or so, i don't think this mute would even fit a smaller cello's bridge because the openings of the mute (where the bridge goes in) is ridiculously narrow! so now i have to return it!
