Description

The new piece you're playing has a direction for con sordino? Sounds like you need a mute!

Made of ebony, this bass mute (on the left) is the classic three prong style. It's designed primarily for performance muting; by attaching it to the bridge, it dampens the instrument's vibrations and results in a "softer" sound.

It is attached to the top of the bridge with one "finger" between each pair of strings.

The opening is about ¼ inch, which gradually narrows over the 1½ inch slot. If your bridge is particularly thick, you can use sandpaper or a flat file to widen the inner surfaces of the mute to fit your bridge.

Very nice quality, real ebony!
