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 are Wiessmeyer & Son mutes different from other mutes?

Please see our technology section on 3D Sound for an expanded explanation of how our mutes work.

  • Our mutes are semi-hollow and feature an internal structure that approximates the acoustic qualities of rigid organic materials such as natural wood, eliminating the dull/hollow sound associated with solid rubber and rigid metal mutes.

  • 3D Sound mutes are designed with an irregular internal matrix that mutes while allowing overtones to still pass through the bridge. This gives our mutes a unique and colorful sound quality not found in any other mute on the market.

  • We've inspected every aspect of how musicians use mutes to ensure our designs:

    • Fit standard instrument bridge thicknesses and string diameters.

    • Effortlessly glide on and off of the bridge and/or strings of the instrument.

    • Never rattle when riding free on the strings behind the bridge.

We design our mutes expressly for musicians seeking the highest quality sound, performance, and value in mutes available on the market today.
