You NEED to buy this mute

Like many artists, I find inspiration in the late hours of the day and evening, much to the chagrin of my wife and neighbors. Prior to the Artino PM-02, we cello players had only two options for quiet mutes - all rubber or all metal. Who would have surmised that combining the two would be the best of both worlds.

All metal (hotel mutes) are most effective but a hazard if you drop it on your cello! You also risk damaging the wood of your bridge from repeated use. All rubber are safe to use but not as quiet. The Artino PM-02 is has a metal core and silicon(?) coating, which is as like using a metal hotel mute with less risk of damage.

NOTE: works better with French bridge. Though mine is Belgian, it functions good, hence the 4 stars.

Good quality and effective mute

I've always worried when using my metal mute about it being knocked off the bridge and damaging the instrument. This is just as effective and with less risk - the metal one hasn't left my case since!

Great for the price, easy to use

Can mute surprisingly well.
I think the screws are for tightening/loosening the mute, but honestly, i don't see anything happening when i turn them. But it can be slipped on the bridge easily, and stays there firm.

Does what it says on the box!

I am impressed by how well this mute does its job! This thing is surprisingly heavy, which contributes to clamping the bridge and stopping most of the resonation.
I recently started playing cello again, and living in an apartment means that I really did not want to annoy the neighbours, and bother the wife and kids in the evening. This mute help with that a lot.
