Best sounding mute
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Does not vibrate when not in use, unlike the traditional "Tourte" style. Allows more overtones to be heard. Good sound.

Cons: Expensive for a small piece of plastic and a bit of brass.

Other: Very good service, as usual.

Effective and good quality
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Cons: It can rattle a little if you do not push it back towards the tailpiece.

Surprisingly effective for its size.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Small and unobtrusive. Doesn't rattle or seem to vibrate when not in use.

Cons: It is a lot smaller than I had thought it should be....but it does the job.

Other: If you want bling, look elsewhere. I was initially underwhelmed when I first handled it...but after using it, it certainly does the job nicely.

Good sound and easy to use

Pros: Good smooth sound, can be adjusted by how hard you apply it to bridge. Easy to apply - does not squeak as you put it on and off like some - which can be solved with talcum powder.

Cons: Can come loose and rattle on the strings when not in use.

Excellence - at a price..

Pros: Easy to fit and remove, small, neat and unobtrusive; lives on the instrument. Quite easy to activate and deactivate. Provides a useful degree of muting, especially at high frequencies, without adversely affecting the sound of the instrument.

Cons: Overpriced! Hence only 4.
