'Ultra' cello practice mute
9 out of 10 found the following review helpful

Pros: This mute is easy to position and effective in dampening down the sound level. Also, its large size helps the beginner focus on their bowing technique. It’s good value in regards to performance and price.

Cons: Unfortunately the bass seems to reverberate a little but this could be down to the individuality of the instrument.

Other: If blocking out sound is imperative, I've found that a metal mute does this better (and perhaps with a little less bass reverberation) - although they are more expensive.

Inexpensive and effective practice aid
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: The mute works well to attenuate the volume produced during practice, which is useful as I have close (though understanding!) neighbours. It's easy to mount, and to dismount too.

Cons: No contrary issues.

Other: It's not really an issue with the mute itself, but when I tune the strings with the mute mounted, I generally have to re-tune the strings when the mute is removed. My teacher says this is not uncommon, so it's merely something to be aware of.

great for the neighbours
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: great - cuts the volume in half without killing the tone of my cello too much, the neighbours are very grateful!

Cons: has created a killer of a wolf note that can't be moved/cured with any of the eliminators that I own.

Other: can't praise string zone high enough for their customer service

Very effective.
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Bought this for my cellist friend because I have one like it for my viola. We both live in terraced houses and are very pleased to be able to practise without worrying about disturbing others. Although the mute damps the sound right down, it's still possible to hear intonation. The cellist especially likes the sound of her muted pizzacato!

Cons: No problems.

Very muting mute
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Offers effective muting while still maintaining a bit of tone and resonance so you don't feel like you're practising on a piece of cheesewire. Makes me feel better about practising around flatmates.

Cons: Nothing - does what I need it to do

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

Does what it says....

Pros: It does what it says on the tin

Cons: There are no cons to date with the product itself

Other: I recently moved into an apartment therefore the reason for buying a practise mute. I personally don't like using the mute because it does what it is supposed to do and mutes the sound (no onset of a Wolf tone either). The product itself works but I just hate muffling such a wonderful instrument but I have to be mindful of my neighbours.

Top mute - does the trick

Pros: Great mute - does the trick and after a few days practice, your ear is really attuned to the sound and you notice a big difference with and without. Quiet when in another room with door shut

Cons: None

Other: I recommend - arrived next day. Thank you
