Orchestral mute
7 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: A well-designed, effective item at an affordable price.

Cons: It can cause a vibration when not in use, but this can be checked by pressing it down more firmly onto the string.

Change of mute type is working well.
5 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: Quick and easy to put on. Cheap and effective. Stays on the instrument so doesn't get lost. No vibration problems compared to the metal legged type of mute.

Cons: Fiddley to use. Little lip which must go over the bridge is a bit of a pain, compared to the metal legged type, but I've had problems with vibration occassionally from this type so am trying the rubber sort. So far it's going well and I like it. Just wish they could make the metal legged type with a soft coating on the legs.

Other: Good price and very fast service from stringzone.

It works, but keep your left hand well up!
5 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: It works - it damps the sound reasonable evenly on a viola and is easy to put in place quickly, which matters when composers - as they do - leave you very little time.

Cons: I find that it tends to migrate towards the bridge and interfere with the sound. It's necessary to keep the left hand high (which doubtless is a generally a good thing, unless your orchestral partner can't see the music through your instrument).

No hassles
5 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: Easy to use, goes on quickly and comes off easily. For the price you cant get much better than this.

Cons: Some people may not like a "loose mute" on the tail piece but this has never bothered me.

Other: Really good mute especially for orchestral playing when you need quick changes. There is nothing complicated on this device which is why it works on so many levels.

Nice Mute
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Easy to fit. Doesn't massively mute the volume, but I find it warms/mellows the sound of my (cheap) violin and generates a more pleasing tone.

Cons: Nothing re the mute, but delivery was slow on this order, despite paying for expedited delivery.
