Ideal for historical and orchestral performance.


These mutes are made in Boston, USA by Paul Wiessmeyer; for violin, viola and cello.

There are two main reasons why you would choose to play with a leather mute, rather than another type of mute:
* Reduces volume of the sound, without sacrificing quality of sound
* Unique design to be used in two different ways, with two different muted effects

For a non-muted effect, place the mute (logo facing the tailpiece) on the strings below the bridge, staying vertical and parallel to the bridge. When you are ready to play with a muted effect, you can either slide the mute up so it is touching the bridge (half-muted, or mezzo piano effect) or place the mute directly on the bridge, with the strings in between the prongs (fully muted effect, pianissimo).
