Material: Iron covered with a thin layer of rubber
Dimensions: 55mm wide, 28mm tall, opening for bridge is 3mm

Use: Place the mute on the bridge, over the strings. Knock gently with one finger to make the mute grip the bridge and retain a good fit and position when you play.
Iron Violin Practice Mute
Love this mute. I plan to buy a couple more soon. I live in an apartment. About 95% or more of my playing, is with a practice mute. I like Fiddlershop's practice mutes, more than my other practice mutes. It seems slightly lighter, but is wider, for a better distribution of weight on the bridge. I have come to the belief, that practicing with a practice mute, may be the BEST way to practice, even if you don't live in an apartment. The full sound of the Fiddle is profound, and lightening up on the sound, helps FOCUS on the nuances required for fiddle playing. THEN, take the mute off occasionally, to see how the instrument REALLY sounds.
Excellent! Great product, delivered quickly, functions as advertised.
Good Back Up Mute
Good Mute. I don't use it as often as my brass mute but it's a nice backup that I keep in my spare violin case.
Great mute that does the job well
This mute provides a much lower volume than the rubber mutes. It sits pretty snuggly on the bridge and have not had an issue dropping it from my violin. I use it when practicing at night while my three year-old sleeps in another room and I have yet to wake him up while using this.
It’s a good, effective mute, I just wish it could be adjustable, even the slightest bit. I’m happy with my purchase though!
