This is our most "extreme" option for muting your violin! This is to be used when maximum muting is necessary. The legs of the metal mute dampen the vibrations of the bridge and significantly reduce the volume.
As you can see in the pictures, the mute does not sit all the way down over the bridge. Because bridge thicknesses vary greatly, the mute is still effective when sitting part of the way down. Just light tap it lightly to help secure the mute to the bridge.
* Practice anywhere
* Produces the highest level of muting

A lot easier to slip on than a rubber mute, and it quiets the instrument significantly more. House mates appreciate not always having to listen to me practice for 2-3 hours daily as well.
I am new
I am new to the violin therefore I do not want everyone to hear my terrible violin playing yet). I have been able to practice violin in my bedroom with this mute, and my wife can watch tv in the living room without being bothered. And our living room is connected to our bedroom. You do have to be careful with it, because it is very heavy, but it will not damage your instrument if you do not jam it onto the bridge. Just put it on, make sure it is a little snug, and play until the early hours of the morning without bothering your family. Great mute!!!
I've recently purchased
I've recently purchased this one without the slightest knowledge of violin mutes, and happened to be pleasantly surprised with the mute. I'm amazed by how silent it makes my violin���the amount I never expected from what I saw in the Fiddlerman video, in which it didn't seem that the mute made the violin that silent; now I stand corrected. I'm currently using this one with the ultimate practice mute and they're just perfect.
Amazing mute, it
Amazing mute, it does it's job perfectly. I would say the decibels loudness) are about the same as an acoustic guitar, it's that quiet! The down side is that the sound does change, it sounds to me like an electric violin with no amp.Also keep in mind that it is made of metal and quite heavy compared to other mutes. If you are going to use this you need to be careful not to damage your instrument.
Wont use any other
Makes playing very quiet! Cant even hear me through a closed door! Ive already recommended to other players
