Great little mute!
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: very nice. love that silky muted sound. fixes easily to your strings when you're not using it.

Cons: not quite as good as the wooden mutes for that lovely muted sound, but the wooden ones can't be fixed to your strings so are a bit impractical. also easily lost. particularly if you lend to someone. but that's got nothing to do with product quality!

Inexpensive and effective
5 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: I like this better than the Tourte round mute because it sits securely on the strings when not in use - the round version tends to be much looser and rattles a bit. Its looks have a touch of individuality that score over the round one too. A rubber mute is best generally because it won't damage the strings - this can be a problem with some of the wire contraptions on offer. I've had many different mutes over the years and there's little to choose between them for sound quality, so convenience and price are the main areas to consider - this mute takes some beating on both counts.

Cons: Nothing to complain about really - it does the job very well.

Cheap and effective little mute.

Pros: They work well; they are easy to fit, they mute the sound just right for me; they don't colour the sound of the violin, they can slide out of the way and be parked near the tail-piece.

Cons: None

Other: Being small and black they can be easy to lose; I bought more than one for this reason.

Grade 8+

Mute and wolf note suppressor combined

Pros: Bought this mute to double as a wolf note suppressor for the G string - sits between bridge and tail piece when not being used as a mute. Does the job!

Cons: None

Perfect non-rattle mute.

Pros: This mute is better than the more common (Tourte branded) one in this shape, which is a harder rubber and doesn't stay in place on the string when not in use. This one stays put perfectly and therefore doesn't rattle. My perfect mute! And dead cheap - who can ask for more.

Cons: nothing

A great, rattle free mute.

Pros: It's a very wise choice if you have a lively instrument - the standard round mute rattles a lot, to the point where I remove it, and then it's never there when I need it!

Cons: Nothing. It's the best design for my violin and viola.
