Really nice muted sound!
4 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: Nice smooth sound, really muted character but no "can" tendency at all. Suits my Baroque/Classical violin as well as my modern!

Cons: The sound is almost as strong as without mute, You might have to play softer than usual if You play with others.

Other: Time will tell if it shakes loose, i hope the well thought solution for keeping it on the strings when not in use will hold for some time!

Excellent!
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Great tone quality in both settings - far superior to rubber or trident mute. Perfect for solo/chamber work or an orchestral solo. Also doesnt leave instrument with that dead sound for the few seconds after you take it off. I've yet to experiment, but I think it might be possible to position it behind bridge so it also acts as wolf eliminator - until you have to use it!

Cons: Although can be secured behind bridge, its not as secure as Tourte style mutes.

Other: Huge convert!

A great mute that allows the instrument to speak.

Pros: Wonderful sound - muted yet keeping the natural sound of the viola rather than feeling like someone's sat on it! Also quick to put on and take off.

Cons: None.

great mute
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: It's small and lightweigt, it stores on the violin strings when nit needed. The sound with the mute on is really nice, a velvety muffled sound.

Cons: The volume produced with the leather mute on is still quite loud. It's good as a practice mute but not to be used as a hotel mute.

An excellent product worth the bigger price tag
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Great sound Snug fit on the strings when not in use Can be pushed up the strings against the bridge for a half-muted sound Well made

Cons: Won't fit thicker bridges.

Other: This is without a doubt the best mute I've tried to date. The muted tone is a much better contrast than that created my rubber mutes and a far more refined tone than that of my rosewood and ebony mutes.

Good sound.

Pros: Sounds is what I was looking for, more close to the original cello sound than with a standard mute. Also some possibilities for variation in sound (depending on how deep you put the mute on the bridge).

Cons: Would fit even better on the bridge if the opening wasn't cut straight.

A real find! I highly recommend giving it a try.

Pros: Excellent sound, not as nasal as wooden mutes, not as deadening as the more obviously convenient sliding plastic/rubber mutes. In the third movement of Brahms Op.67 quartet, where the two violins and cello are muted but the viola is not, we found it gave the best possible mix of sound and balance.

Cons: Obviously not as convenient for orchestral playing.

Other: Recommended for chamber music.

Gives nice sound quality but barely mutes at all

Pros: Mutes gently without muffling the sound

Cons: Barely mutes at all - nice sound but a bit pointless

Other: Allows you to see most of the strings as it's rather small
