Great and effective product - worth the price!

Pros: Its exactly what a beginner needs, simple and effective.

Cons: It was hard to put on but once it was on it worked perfectly

Other: Apparently its better t buy the full circular ones because they do less damage to the bridge of the violin.

Decent Violin Mute

Pros: Mutes the sound very well. Is easy to fit and remove.

Cons: Creates a strange vibration in each string that then reverberates around the inside of the violin. It's noticible only if you listen for it, unfortunately I have very good hearing, but its a small price to pay when you want to practice without disturbing the neighbours.

Great tool enabling practice in a busy house.

Pros: What a great tool for practicing. I was sceptical it would have much effect, but I can now practice whilst others are in the house without them really noticing. Gives me confidence.

Cons: Changes the sound dramitacally (of course!!!) which takes some getting used to.

Practice mute

Pros: Its a good weight, especially after using a sub-standard mute. It deadens the sound brilliantly, so I can still play without waking my neighbour's child :-)

Cons: N/A

Ultra Violin Practice Mute

Pros: Really nice and easy to put on and take off and really works too, I can practice to my heart's content without worrying about annoying my husband and the neighbours. It dulls the sound considerably. I wish I'd known about this ages ago, I'd have got a lot further than I have with my playing!

Cons: Nothing, what's not to like about it?

Does exactly what it's designed for

Pros: This mute does exactly what it's designed for, it really mutes the sound. On my violin, it still allows a warm sound on the lower register (albeit much quieter) while the top register is reduced to a very tinny sound which is exactly what is to be expected. It's not too clunky like other practice mutes that I have seen and it's made of rubber so it won't damage your bridge like the metal mutes. This is my first practice mute so I don't really have much to compare it to however it does exactly what I needed.

Cons: After use, my violin took a little playing to get back to its normal sound. It's not a con but if this happens to you too, don't worry, you haven't destroyed the sound of your instrument. Play it for a few minutes and it will be back to normal. For this reason, however, I would not use this mute before walking out on stage, or if I did, I would definitely make sure that I had played it for a few minutes without the mute on.

Other: Very pleased.
