W&S Signature Mutes

Fancy Mutes


Our personal autograph Wiessmeyer & Son (@viowiess) design, GLO mutes are created using a synthetic rubber that contains a phosphorescent compound not found in natural rubber. The mute is charged under natural light and emits a soft green glow when used in low light. Limited production run, introduced Labor Day 2019.

BW on why he wanted to create a glow in the dark practice mute:

“Halloween! There’s a first for everything, including the world’s first glow in the dark mute.”


This rainbow viola dual tone was hand colored for violist and instagram personality Holly Gutierrez (@holly_viola). This was an especially challenging custom request because the color layering complexity is two times greater than our commercial prizma models. To achieve the rainbow pattern, 13 colors were hand blended into the mute during the 3D-print process.

Rainbow mutes are currently not for sale.
