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

Don't waste your money

Item came without any instructions. Installed on violin and did absolutely no muting at all. Not worth the expense of returning it either. Complete rip-off.

Great Product

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.

    Comments about The String Centre Ultra Rubber Practice Mute:

    I purchased two of these, one for me and one for a student. I have to order more now they are so effective, and cost effective. I use them to practive in peace, not disturbing the rest of the household. I even use it when I'm in my studio, it is pleasing when just working on chops.........

              Comments about The String Centre Ultra Rubber Practice Mute:

              I needed this for muting when I practice with family around. Great solution. It takes the edge off of the sound and quiets it. The result is very much like a Renaissance viol (viola da gamba) sound. It's also easier on my own ears as I am learning new skills.
              I haven't tried other mutes, so there may be quieter solutions out there, but this works for me.
              Remember to take the mute off when putting your violin in its case!

                  Comments about The String Centre Ultra Rubber Practice Mute:

                  I have never used a violin mute before; therefore I can not compare it to other mutes, but I am very well pleased with this product. My violin actually sounds better although I don't know why! It fits the bridge tight, but does not center all of the strings. This is the only reason that did not give it five stars. This may not be fair since I am very pleased with it and this small issue does not affect the sound quality. If you are looking for a violin mute, then try this one. For the price that you pay at Musician's Friend you can not go wrong!

                          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.
