We had two guiding principles when we decided to create the ultimate orchestral string mute worthy of the 21st century:
1) Sound quality should be untethered from volume.
2) Maneuvering the mute in and out of position should be fast, easy, and worry-free.
All our mutes are designed to preserve the unique character and tonal quality of your instrument….in other words reduce volume while maintaining color of your sound.
Our patented three-position violin mutes were created specifically for violinists desiring two levels of muting volume (pianissimo and mezzo piano).
Our mutes also feature geometry that allows for the mute to sit securely on the strings and lightining fast on/off positioning.
For violinists that insist on performing while crowd-surfing; our two-hole tourte-style mutes feature a completely redesigned geometry that allows for the mute to sit securely on the strings down near the tailpiece without rattle.
The improved design makes it easier and faster to engage and disengage the mute.
The single hole, tourte-style mutes feature an improved design to make it easier and faster to engage. It will fit anywhere on the bridge between or over the string, allowing you to custom balance the volumes of the treble or bass.
For musicians wedging the mute between the A and D strings, an improved body shape makes it easier to secure the mute down near the tailpiece and eliminate rattling.
