This mute is harder to put on than the Tourte mutes. Also, the Polly costs $10 for one mute & the Tourte costs $6.60 for a package of 6 mutes. A huge savings. They sound very similar.

My favorite mute thus far and I have tried almost every one out there. Easy and silent to put on - just slide it on, no need to bend/place over bridge. Nice tone when muted. Doesn't buzz when not in use. Clear color also doesn't leave black marks on the bridge as the Tourte does and is relatively inconspicuous.

Maybe mine was defective, this mute did not work one bit and here is why: It had no hooking device, in other words had nothing to attach it over the edge of the bridge like one would see on a tourte mute. So when it was in the "on" position it simply laid next to the bridge. My husband and I heard no volume or timbre change from "on" to being moved away from the bridge.

I have a lot of different violin mutes. My all time favorite was the black rubber Fawick mute which was popular in the 1960s. The Polly Mute looks like a clone of the old Fawick mutes, but there is a bit of an improvement in the sound of the Polly Mute. I attribute the richer sound of the Polly Mute to the elasticity of the soft polymer material. Mutes made out of regular rubber seem to have a more nasal sound. Also, a lot of rubber mutes tend to rattle around when they are not in use. I really like the subtle appearance of the clear Polly Mute.
