Great Mute buy one
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: I live in a flat and did not want to upset my neighbours with my learning. This mute was the solution now I can play without worry. It mutes significantly but not so much that you lose the feel. In fact I like it so much it takes a bit of getting used to full sound when i remove it. Well made and works.

Cons: The only thing about this mute I didn't like was the plastic box it came in which cracked withing minutes of opening it. As it live on my bridge that's not an issue.

Other: Great mute buy one.

Efficient, rubber coating protects bridge, heavy.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very efficient muting, ideal for practice where no volume permissible. Rubber covering negates the possibility of damage to the bridge.

Cons: The mute is heavy (that's probably why it works so well!), so great care must be taken in usage - if you forgot it was on the cello, you moved the instrument and the mute fell, then it could possibly cause damage.

Other: Would recommend!

Very pleased I bought this
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Really does mute the sound!! The higher registers (the A string generally and high positions especially) are particularly well muted. Also I have a thick bridge (c4mm wide at the top) which was a worry, but the mute fitted just fine.

Cons: Nothing it met all my needs

Other: I found it has helped enormously with practice because when playing with the mute, intonation, sound quality etc become even more clear and obvious. Also it helps because you really do make a big sound when you take it off.

Great for nitty gritty note-learning & practice.

Pros: I'm really quite impressed with this mute. It certainly does a good job of curbing the sound of the 'cello to a reasonable level for practice in the home and for lengthy practice sessions. Inevitably, it doesn't make the instrument completely 'quiet', more to the level of the radio in the back-ground, to my ear at any rate. This is very helpful. I have two instruments, one of which is particularly loud, and this mute means that I can now practice in a modern terraced house with relatively thin walls without feeling that I'm imposing myself on my neighbours to any significant degree.

Cons: Its effectiveness means that it does alter the sound of the instrument quite a bit, but that strikes me as the general idea!

Other: It's fairly hefty, so keeping it in a pocket separate to the instrument (and particularly to any bows) might be a good idea to save any accidents.

Mutes well but affects the sound quality

Pros: It really mutes but changes the quality of sound significantly

Cons: Although it does what it is supposed to, the quality of the strings / sound is very much affected. I suggest getting the performance mute instead - the level of muting is less but the quality much better preserved.

great mute!!!

Pros: Lighter than the metallic one but more stable due to the rubber structure: in this way you can avoid injuries to your instrument

Cons: Nothing

Kills sound, doesn't compromise it.
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Cuts the sound but does not change the sound of your cello. Its compact and easy to apply to the bridge.

Cons: It might hide a few of your mistakes which can be problem over fast repertoire. Extremely heavy so if you forget to take it off and put the cello down, it could do some damage.

Other: This is a great gadget for using when you don't to disturb people at night (especially in student halls) or you want to play to yourself in the green room before a concert. A fantastic little item which is well worth the money.

Great service and support. Recommended
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: I found the whole experience very good. Delivery of my Gewa mute was swift and subsequent telephone support was equally good. I will definitely be using the String Zone for my future purchases and can highly recommend them.

Cons: None.

Other: The Gewa did not quite fit my bridge but I found that it can be altered with the aid of a set of small metal files and a little patience. Now fits like a glove. The rubber coating can be reformed to suit your needs.
