Nice looking and effective.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very simple design with no clumsy looking screw sticking out or compressing the string. Fits on the string very easily and is easy to adjust up and down until the optimum position is found. A clear improvement in the wolf but I haven't eliminated it completely .

Cons: It's a bit expensive otherwise I would have bought a 5g and a 7g for my cello and experimented with them. I bought the 7g because my wolf was so bad but perhaps the 5g would have been more effective? Maybe I'll save up and find out.

Worth it!
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Great aesthetic.. Very effective at dampening wolf. I'd say it even enhanced the cello tone. (It must of course be correctly positioned).

Cons: Tuning (correct positioning) relies on moving the eliminator and this is slightly tricky due to the string being taught which clamps it in position.

Didn't work for me.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Fits easily and looks OK - nice shiny brass - violin model.

Cons: Didn't really solve the wolf note problem - in my case around B-C an octave above middle C - terrible on G string, noticeable on D, but fine on A.

Other: The problem had been transiently suppressed by a skilled luthier at a price, but came back when I changed the strings and re-fitted his little 0.5g lead weight myself.

An unbreakable device that almost works
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Of the available wolf eliminators, this is better than the standard cylindrical ones, and probably more effective than most. It reduced the wolf, rather than 'eliminated' it, but it also didn't dampen the resonance in general. I only bought the 5 g model, and it may be that a heavier one would work better.

Cons: It is a bit fiddly to tune to the wolf note, as you have to loosen the string to fit it, but that's a minor disadvantage.

Other: I've tried various wolf eliminators, and none works as well as a Tourte style mute wedged in between the D and G strings. Much cheaper too!

An improved Wolfnote suppressor
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Works fine and easy to put on when you know how!

Cons: No information on how to put the adjuster on the string i.e. you have to loosen the string weave the string round the curves. I had to phone the Stringzone for advice. Just a simple line on the packet would have helped. Otherwise easy: no screw and nut to tighten or rubber inner lining to come loose.

Ingenious solution to strings acoustic problem
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: The contact of the mass to the string is in te form of point, instead of long rubber mass. This will sharpen the definition of the position better. High density since there is no rubber materials involved. Easy to install, there is no need to struggle with rubber insertion and screw tightening. Fine surface finish.

Cons: None at all

Other: Better if they are available in a selection of a more wider mass ranges, such that we can experiments with.

Perfect

Pros: Made the cello G string sound nice and did the job perfectly. Easy to fit when you know how. Not overly bulky or horrible to look at either.

Cons: Difficult (but not impossible) to move it without loosening the string.
