Pretty good, not so easy to use
Endre_, 12.06.2020
It was too tight at first I could barely place it onto the bridge, one one side it wasn't going in at all. I had to adjust it with a sharp knife, carefully making the distances bigger. Now I can put it on halfway and it really dampens the sound a LOT so all in all I'm pretty happy with the result as I will use it to practice when late evening or something.
Be careful not to push hard you may damage your bridge. I just pat it gently with my finger on the top. It's NOT supposed to go in all the way like the rubber mutes.

I don't have a lot of experience but it sounds ok, strings behave a little bit different so definitely not something to use all the time if you're a beginner, but a good compromise.

Pros: stable (heavy but doesn't fall off) and mutes quite well. The sound definitely changes (becomes a bit thinner) but isn't irritating, quite nice for practising since you can still hear the violin clearly. It even feels like my bowing improved a little, maybe because I was using extra effort to make a nice sound (which then requires some extra pressure on the string, too) while practising with the mute, so when I took it off, it felt easier.
Cons: I don't know if it's the bridge of my violin that is a little thick but I wish I could place the mute further on it (which would hopefully result in better muting).

Quite satisfied with the mute.

Perfecto.
Timber Wolf, 29.03.2018
I bought it along with the violin as I never playe dbefore violin and didn't know how much noisy would it be.

I play 100% of the time on my home, and when there is my partner, i put on the mute, it fits quite nice and I got really astonished how much quieter it sounds. I can play it next to my partner while she's watching TV and I do not disturb her.

It is made of a very sturdy material, it has fallen to the floor several times and it looks like the first day.

As a con, what I don't like it is that it sounds different, but I guess that it happens with everyother mute as you are putting something on the bridge.

This really mutes
28.11.2015
I bought this mute so I could practice in the evenings without disturbing anyone. It certainly does mute the violin so you can't complain about that. The issue for me is the sound that you get. When you put the mute on the bridge for the first time, you are really surprised by the sound you get (well I was anyway). The sound is pretty quiet - certainly quiet enough for evening practice, but the sound is really thin, strange and not pleasant to listen to. It does what it's supposed to, but for me, it's just not pleasant to listen to at all. This means that I only use this if I really need to practice something, but more often that not, I'll just practice the fingering on the left hand and not use my bow if I really need to. I much prefer the other orchestra mutes, but they don't reduce the volume to this extent of course. The mute is well made and basically it's a piece of heavy rubber, but I don't use it anywhere near as much as I had hoped.
