When is a mute not a mute?
Dan1991 02.12.2018
When it's a tourte mute. These are typically used to change the sound characteristics of string instruments. Rather than making them quieter, it seems to take away between 10-20% of their resonance. As a result the instrument sounds darker, and it makes it harder for the produced sound to travel longer distances. This means your neighbours will probably have an easier time, but the people sitting in front of you might not notice a difference.

If you are searching for something to colour your playing, this is it. If you're looking for something to make your instrument substantially quieter, you'd be far better off buying a practice mute instead.

Does the job

I'm not a big fan of using a mute, but this one reduces the sound levels well when I need quiet practice time.

A mute is a mute
Pixolives 26.07.2019
I am an amateur cello player and I use this to play music which requires a mute.

The Tourte Mute does what you should expect from a mute (take away the brightness of your tone and turn it into a more velvety sort of thing). It is unsophisticated and inelegant to the eye and touch. Easy to use and unproblematic. I don't think there is much more to say about it. If you want a piece of jewellery for your cello, this is not it. If you want silent practice, practice with a stick.

discreet mute

The muting is rather discreet, which may prove to be more pleasant for the user of the instrument but not for those around it. Even if It does not really filter the sound so much for those nearby, it works rather fine for those in adjacent rooms and farther.
