Stringed instruments mutes that perfectly balance sound fidelity and dampening. Wiessmeyer & Son manufactures a complete line of synthetic, 3D-printed mutes for aspiring and professional violin, viola, and cello players.

How do I play using a Disc mute?

  1. Place the mute onto the two middle strings behind the bridge.

  2. When not in use, secure the mute by gently pulling it at a downward angle towards the tailpiece until it firmly wedges in place on the strings.

  3. To engage the mute, slide the mute towards the bridge. Lift the mute up and over the crown of the bridge and push it down until it seats firmly.
