Comments about The String Centre Metal Practice Mute:

Metal mutes work to quiet down a violin while practicing. The rubber versions don't do a good job of this. This one works very well, but the slot to fit it onto the bridge was too narrow for my bridges. It wouldn't fit onto the bridge. This is easily fixed by widening the slot a bit with a small file. It's easy to do, even if you are not a handy dandy type instrument maker or shop junkie. I used a half round needle file. The mute now works just fine.

    Comments about The String Centre Metal Practice Mute:

    This is an essential item for a beginner. It gives a novice the freedom to try and to fail and to try again and again, with confidence.

    I also bought the black rubber/plastic one. That one is good, but this one is many times better.

    If you really want very little noise.

    By Nick-c4b6w

    Comments about The String Centre Metal Practice Mute:

    EXCELLENT!!! I have been searching for the perfect practice violin, and was even considering purchasing an electric violin until I found out how expensive electric and silent violins are. I have the Glaesel Prong Violin Mute, and it just wouldn't cut down on the loudness of the violin to be low enough so no one can hear me in other rooms or next door houses. I was a little worried about the mute damaging my bridge, considering the mute is completely made out of metal, but honestly all you have to do is let the mute rest on the bridge. There is no need to force the mute on. The sound of the violin still sounds decent too. If you are looking into buying a silent violin, because you don't want other people hearing you practice the same songs over and over again, stop and don't spend hundreds of dollars on a high quality silent violin, yet. Try this mute out on your acoustic first and then decide if you want to go the more expensive way of practicing quietly. I don't know how the cello mute is, but I am assuming it has the same quality as the violin.
