The disc mute (most commonly known as the tourte mute) became popular with orchestral players in the 70’s for its reliable, rubberized performance. Material choice and technology have improved over the last 50 years allowing us to make mutes that:

  • Sound better because they filter out fewer overtones during volume reduction (aka muting). We accomplish this feat using 3D-printing magic and material science.

  • Don’t buzz or rattle on the strings.

  • Make you the most interesting player dressed in black.

Sound: Moderate pianissimo.
