      Affordable, easy to install, and reduces decibels by about 30% - 40% (by my estimate) without affecting sound quality.

        Fine mute but does not fit a 1/8 size violin (in case your child complains it's too loud for his ear). I'll use it to save my own hearing.

                Not what you think it is

                By David Wood

                from Virginia - USA

                Comments about The String Centre Ultra Rubber Practice Mute:

                Rubber mute = Day time practice

                Metal Mute = Night time practice (With note distortion)
                In a nutshell it "cuts" the sound of your violin down to 1/3 which is quiet enough to practice late at night at the OTHER end of your house or in your garage but, if your looking for a mute to practice in your bedroom without waking your sleeping roomates. Look at "METAL PRACTICE MUTES" however the metal practice mutes slightly change the "sound" of the violin making it hard in some cases to tell what notes you are hitting

                This rubber mute does not

                Great Product

                By Michael Sweatt

                from Oklahoma

                Comments about The String Centre Ultra Rubber Practice Mute:

                This was a great decision for me to buy this. I like to practice a lot and now I can do it without anyone in the house hearing me. My wife says that she can barely hear it standing outside the closed door of the room.

                Great product for anyone who likes to practice and not disturb anyone else.

                Does as intended. Worked on my viola as well.

                By Allan Eustace

                from Philadelphia, PA

                Comments about The String Centre Ultra Rubber Practice Mute:

                I am really happy I plucked down the money for the Ultra Rubber Practice Mute.

                It reduces the volume of your instrument significantly, allowing you to practice without disturbing other people around you. If you are parent, and you child is just starting violin lessons, the small ammount of money you spend on this mute might preserve your sanity.

                When the mute arrived I immediately fit in over top of the bridge of my violin and tried it out. I found it fits over a viola bridge just as well.

                The discription of the product says that the rubber based mute "provides high level of muting while preserving more tone quality than the metal variety." This is actually the first/only mute I've tried, but I would agree that it definately preserves the tone quality, it kind of just "softens" everything a bit. It actually sounds really nice on the lower strings of my viola.

                Again, this mute performs well, and is a great value.
