Sihon Wire Mute
No unpleasant suprises. Another tonality to your mute collection. Low visability. Very low cost and worth a try. Fiddler Shop always responds well for their customers.
Sihon Wire Slide-on Violin Mute Does not Work!
This is a terrible mute. You can't even call it a mute. It doesn't slide over the bridge to mute the strings. It butts up to the bridge but has no affect on the sound. There is no sound difference. It does nothing. Do not waste your time or money on this product. I was going to try the viola mute, maybe it would be different but afraid it would be the same.
My experience exeeded all expectations. It was absolutely great. Thank you so much! Kind regards, Francois Bouguenon
As always, the Fiddleshop guys are great but this product isn’t. I bought 3 of them and was disappointed in them all. They came apart while I was trying to put them on the fiddle. I super glued them so they would stay together which worked but once installed I found they rattle distorting the sound. I had an older one which had less arch and didn’t fall apart that worked much better but I don’t know if they can still be purchased. I ordered the Tourte mute and found it to be much better although far from perfect too. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
