Popular rubber mute which stays on the instrument. Locates on one string.

Pros: very nice. love that silky muted sound. fixes easily to your strings when you're not using it.
Cons: not quite as good as the wooden mutes for that lovely muted sound, but the wooden ones can't be fixed to your strings so are a bit impractical. also easily lost. particularly if you lend to someone. but that's got nothing to do with product quality!

Pros: I like this better than the Tourte round mute because it sits securely on the strings when not in use - the round version tends to be much looser and rattles a bit. Its looks have a touch of individuality that score over the round one too. A rubber mute is best generally because it won't damage the strings - this can be a problem with some of the wire contraptions on offer. I've had many different mutes over the years and there's little to choose between them for sound quality, so convenience and price are the main areas to consider - this mute takes some beating on both counts.
Cons: Nothing to complain about really - it does the job very well.
A great, rattle free mute.
Pros: It's a very wise choice if you have a lively instrument - the standard round mute rattles a lot, to the point where I remove it, and then it's never there when I need it!
Cons: Nothing. It's the best design for my violin and viola.
