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.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

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.

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

Good for retaining natural quality of sound

Pros: It retains a natural quality of sound, and looks very neat and smart. I have terrible trouble with wolf notes with heavier rubber hotel mutes, which this does not create at all.

Cons: It definitely wouldn't be suitable for needing to be very quiet, it just takes the edge off. I haven't successfully used it in the three different positions yet.

Great for solos

Pros: Beautiful sound. Great for solos. The notches really work too, so you can attach the mute to your strings and simply slide it up when needed.

Cons: This make seems stiff and a bit plasticky compared with what I'd come across via other players, but being leather it'll wear in.
