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 mount my Catrpilr?

The mute can be attached to the bridge in under 15 seconds with a little practice. While holding your instrument in the playing position:

  1. Ensure the side with the W&S faces you.

  2. Gently wiggle the center magnetic feet over the bridge.

  3. Work from the inside out until all 5 sets of feet are firmly on the bridge.

To remove the mute, slowly pull upwards with a slight wiggling motion. The mute will slowly “learn” the shape of the bridge with repeated use and may also be left on the bridge when your instrument is in its case.
