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

I’ve never had a mute before so I can’t really compare it to others, but I am very impressed with this one. Not only does it completely shut down the resonance, it looks nice and is not in the way. Glad I bought it.
A must for beginners!
I love this mute! I am a total beginner and I have been playing for 12 days now. The screeching and squawking is just horrendous. I received the mute today and I can already tell that its made me a more confident player. I now realize I was playing very hesitantly because of all the horrible noise I was making. With this mute, I can also play at night without attracting all the neighborhood cats with my caterwauling. I'm playing on a borrowed violin but am looking forward to using this mute on my brand new Fiddlershop fiddle, which is on its way! Thanks Fiddlershop!
Does the job - works like any heavy bridge mute. I like the gold - really stylish!
These mutes are exactly what I was looking for. I am a beginner violinist but also live with two other roommates in a crowded city apartment building. The Brass Violin Mute pops onto my bridge easily and then significantly quiets my playing without sacrificing tone quality. Highly recommend the mutes for anyone who needs to give their roommates' ears a break!
Very satisfied - again!
