I actually love this mute. It's small, compact, and works quite well. My only actual problem comes from the fact that it stretches out while it's used to the point that it sometimes falls off of the string. Other than that, during a performance, once it flipped around the string and got stuck, but I solved the issue relatively quickly. I think, especially for the price, that it is quite good.

This is my favorite model of mute -- effective, inexpensive, and one-size-fits-all! As a private cello teacher with students in youth orchestras, I try to keep these 1-hole "violin-shaped" Tourte cello mutes on hand because I know they will work well on *any* student's cello, regardless of their cello's size or wolf-suppressor placement. In contrast, the 2-hole models of rubber mutes (circular Tourte-style or square Glaesel-style) simply won't fit between the strings of some smaller cellos. And a carefully-positioned wolf suppressor can be knocked out of place all too easily when using a 2-hole mute. Also, in case you were wondering, there's very little difference between the 1-hole and 2-hole rubber mutes, sound-wise. Both modify the tone far more effectively than the brass-and-wire sliding mutes, without muffling the volume as much as the "classic" wooden mutes (or the heavy rubber or metal "practice" mutes).

These mutes should arrive with the slit already cut. If you have received one that doesn't have a slit, please contact our Customer Service department. Sorry for the inconvenience!
