Description

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.

    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.
