The Ultra Practice Mute is molded from sound-deadening rubber, and for practice muting is superior to metal mutes. Proudly made in the USA.

This, similar to the ebony performance mute (see links, below) also fixes onto the bridge of the instrument to reduce its loudness. By adding mass to the bridge, it muffles the vibration of the bridge, thereby muting the instrument considerably - which your housemates/roommates will be very happy to hear! (And your downstairs neighbors will appreciate it if you also put a pillow under your endpin - that'll help reduce the transmission of sound to the floor!)

Generally speaking, rubber mutes like this are not used in performance, but rather can be most useful for reducing the volume of the instrument when practicing, by dampening bridge vibrations. Flexible, so no modifications are needed to the mute or your instrument.

    Practice mute

    Posted by Steve Alcott on Jul 6th 2023

    I use this a lot, as I have a family with an infant whose room is above my studio. They say that can really tell when I have it on. I shove it on as far as it will go, and it cuts the volume a lot.

    Not Ultra

    It doesn’t really mute it. I can notice a slight difference but maybe I’m just putting it on wrong? Seems straight forward to put on.

    Very modest muting effect

    Posted by LDM on Jan 29th 2021

    I found this mute to provide only very modest attenuation of volume. Not enough to allow quieter practice with the bow as I had hoped. It also noticably affects the response of the strings and tends to leave black markings on the bridge when removed.
