This mute was recommended to my by my orchestra director, and I'm really glad I bought it. As the other reviewers mentioned, the mute does stain the bridge black - I guess it never bothered me, but it might bother you; that's just something to keep in mind. I had a problem with my mute a few months ago (after owning it for about 9 months). It started to squeak when I would move it onto the bridge. Not really something you want when you're performing, or practicing, for that matter! So I took a little TINY drop of coconut oil on a butter knife and slid the knife carefully between the "bridge pocket," (or whatever that is called). I rubbed it carefully on the mute and then clipped it back on the violin. It didn't squeak a bit when I moved it to the bridge. If you try this, you could probably use vegetable oil if you don't have coconut oil. Anyway, I just thought I'd share this in case anyone else's mute develops "Mutesqueak."

This product is definitely worth its price. It does mute well and is handy, but it has a huge downside: it stains the bridge. My brother had previously used this mute on his violin, and it had left a very, very noticeable stain. I had also tried the same bridge on my new violin, and I noticed it started to stain that as well, so I stopped using it. Otherwise, it gets the job done.
