Mute gives surprising results.
8 out of 9 found the following review helpful

Pros: I'm trying this one out as an experiment. I had previously had a metal legged one, but suspected that not shoving it down far enough caused vibration. I would recommend this one over the metal legged type, although it has a couple of drawbacks. Firstly, the 'lip' of the mute has to be carefully placed over the bridge, so just pulling it up at lightening fast speed is not possible, though it can be pretty quick. The other drawback is that it doesn;t sound as good as the metal legged one. It seems to kill the sound a lot more, so rather than being con sordini and lovely, it just kills it dead. However, I'm going to stick with it for a bit, as the drawback of my metal legged one is occasional vibration if it isn;t shoved down the strings enough.

Cons: The sound. On my very early 19th century English cello (william Forster the elder) it's pretty good, but it kills my German 19th century cello stone dead. So two different, but very good cellos are responding very differently to it.

Other: Always buy a mute that sits on the cello, permanently on the instrument. The ones you stick on and off as needed are terrible, make clunking noises, are slow, and always get lost.

Perfect basic mute

Pros: Great orchestral mute. Absolutely fantastic value for money (the price at stringzone is just perfect)

Cons: It may screech if your bridge is broad, or leave a little stain on it. Not in my case though!

excellent cheap mute

Pros: excellent cheap mute, does the job perfectly

Cons: can rattle very slightly if it's positioned in the wrong place when not on the bridge, but this can be rectified by just adjusting a little.
