Convenient but doesn't make a huge difference
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Doesn't rattle or fall off. Easy to put on and remove quickly without interrupting flow of the music, can use either hand for it.

Cons: Scratches my strings a bit. Doesn't actually mute that much on higher strings.

Other: A very convenient, low-profile mute that is easy to put on and remove very quickly and quietly with either hand. However this ease sacrifices the actual muting; my viola's D and A don't sound all that different muted or un-muted! Also dragging the mute up and down the strings does leave marks on the strings. I will stick with it for the pure convenience factor but next time I change the strings I will probably swap back to a traditional round rubber one (with magnet!).

a reliable and practical mute

Pros: The Roth Sihon mute does its job well, is very easy to flick on to the bridge and does not rattle or buzz when not in use. In every way, I like it.

Cons: Nothing

Used on a violin, works quite well!
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Firet of all i have to say I'm using tjis mute on a violin. i tried the violin version before and it was so tight it damaged the strings, and quite badly. This one is a bit looser and doesn't mess with the strings.

Cons: Since it's not perfectly toght on tje bridge the muting effect is diminished. It still helps with the loudest and higher pitches. i find it useful, even though i wouldn't reccommend it f you need really quite practicing. It's still better than a tortue mute in my opinion.
