About This Item

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.

Hi Peter, thank you for your question! This mute is similar to the one on Alexi Strings. They do not make their own mutes, however. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Asked On: 10/17/2019

What size violin does this mute fit? I need one for 1/2 size and want the metal mute.

SHAR Answer:

Hello Robert! This mute will be to big for a 1/2 size violin bridge and could damage your instrument. We don't have a metal mute for a 1/2 size, but we carry a 1/2 size rubber practice mute. Let us know if you have any other questions!
