Whether you need to minimize your sound for smaller performances, practice a bit more quietly, or play music which requires a muted part, the D’Addario Spector Violin Mute is the best way to reduce your volume. Initially designed by Fred Spector, 45-year veteran violinist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, this compact violin practice mute fits between the A and D strings of the violin and is easily engaged by simply sliding it up over the bridge. While not in use, slide it back down and the mute remains on the instrument, without interfering in your playing or sound.
The Spector Violin Mute is an effective way to reduce the volume of your violin, whether for quiet practice or intimate performance.
Awesome mute - makes muting and unmuting my violin quick and smooth, allowing me a more confident playing experience.
exactly what we needed
Awesome. clear description, fast service.
Mute with a purpose..,
Each Mute has it’s on purpose.. Many have stated it doesn’t work well. I believe it works as intended and is fine. It is true that it does mute as much as others, but I have found it to be most effective on lively, or more resonant violins..I leave it on permanently and it is perfect for my application..
The mute is great for playing in an orchestral setting (wish I could during the current situation). I like it, it does change the sound of my violin but not like a practice mute. I am really satisfied with this purchase.
does not work
This simply does not change the sound of the violin at all. I read the instructions carefully and experimented with it on several violins over several days. Just doesn't work.
