Mutes well but affects the sound quality

Pros: It really mutes but changes the quality of sound significantly

Cons: Although it does what it is supposed to, the quality of the strings / sound is very much affected. I suggest getting the performance mute instead - the level of muting is less but the quality much better preserved.

great mute!!!

Pros: Lighter than the metallic one but more stable due to the rubber structure: in this way you can avoid injuries to your instrument

Cons: Nothing

Kills sound, doesn't compromise it.

Pros: Cuts the sound but does not change the sound of your cello. Its compact and easy to apply to the bridge.

Cons: It might hide a few of your mistakes which can be problem over fast repertoire. Extremely heavy so if you forget to take it off and put the cello down, it could do some damage.

Other: This is a great gadget for using when you don't to disturb people at night (especially in student halls) or you want to play to yourself in the green room before a concert. A fantastic little item which is well worth the money.

Pros: I found the whole experience very good. Delivery of my Gewa mute was swift and subsequent telephone support was equally good. I will definitely be using the String Zone for my future purchases and can highly recommend them.

Cons: None.

Other: The Gewa did not quite fit my bridge but I found that it can be altered with the aid of a set of small metal files and a little patience. Now fits like a glove. The rubber coating can be reformed to suit your needs.

Very effective product
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Mutes very effectively enabling me to practice in a flat. Holds on well to the bridge too. Fantastic product.

Cons: It is fairly tight on the bridge so it wouldn't be suitable if you had a wider bridge than average. It does dramatically alter the tone produced so wouldn't be useful for that side of practising, only for technique.
