About This Item

Wire with plastic roller.

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.

Asked On: 09/20/2017

This mute isn't demonstrated in the mute demonstration video. Can you post a video comparing it to the tourte mute? Also, can you let me know the sound difference between the two? I was hoping to get a response quicker than it may take to record a new video. Thanks Jeff

SHAR Answer:

Hi Jeff! We are always working on new videos and we appreciate your feedback. Stay tuned for additional mute videos in the future. When tested in our shop, there was very little audible difference between the Slide On Mute and Tourte Mute. Both produced very similar instrument volume levels. If you have additional questions, we are available at 1-800-248-7427 and would be happy to help!
