Lovely sound, worth the price (just don't lose it)

Pros: Really sounds amazing, way better than any other mutes I've tried Looks very nice When not in use, stays on quite well

Cons: Prone to being knocked off and lost Extended/high energy passages can cause it to come off the bridge when muting, if you aren't careful

Other: Would definitely recommend despite the cons

Good sound.

Pros: Sounds is what I was looking for, more close to the original cello sound than with a standard mute. Also some possibilities for variation in sound (depending on how deep you put the mute on the bridge).

Cons: Would fit even better on the bridge if the opening wasn't cut straight.

Gives nice sound quality but barely mutes at all

Pros: Mutes gently without muffling the sound

Cons: Barely mutes at all - nice sound but a bit pointless

Other: Allows you to see most of the strings as it's rather small

Good for retaining natural quality of sound

Pros: It retains a natural quality of sound, and looks very neat and smart. I have terrible trouble with wolf notes with heavier rubber hotel mutes, which this does not create at all.

Cons: It definitely wouldn't be suitable for needing to be very quiet, it just takes the edge off. I haven't successfully used it in the three different positions yet.

Great for solos

Pros: Beautiful sound. Great for solos. The notches really work too, so you can attach the mute to your strings and simply slide it up when needed.

Cons: This make seems stiff and a bit plasticky compared with what I'd come across via other players, but being leather it'll wear in.

Very satisfied

Pros: Best sound from a mute yet. As advertised it maintains a great tone while also dampening the sound.

Cons: still loud enough to make my ears ring somewhat after playing

A good mute!

Pros: Discrete, stays on my cello when not in use, two different levels of muting, as effective as larger traditional mutes

Cons: I'm worried about the wear and tear on the mute over time.
