Pros: stable (heavy but doesn't fall off) and mutes quite well. The sound definitely changes (becomes a bit thinner) but isn't irritating, quite nice for practising since you can still hear the violin clearly. It even feels like my bowing improved a little, maybe because I was using extra effort to make a nice sound (which then requires some extra pressure on the string, too) while practising with the mute, so when I took it off, it felt easier.
Cons: I don't know if it's the bridge of my violin that is a little thick but I wish I could place the mute further on it (which would hopefully result in better muting).

Quite satisfied with the mute.

Pretty good, not so easy to use
Endre_ 12.06.2020
It was too tight at first I could barely place it onto the bridge, one one side it wasn't going in at all. I had to adjust it with a sharp knife, carefully making the distances bigger. Now I can put it on halfway and it really dampens the sound a LOT so all in all I'm pretty happy with the result as I will use it to practice when late evening or something.
Be careful not to push hard you may damage your bridge. I just pat it gently with my finger on the top. It's NOT supposed to go in all the way like the rubber mutes.

I don't have a lot of experience but it sounds ok, strings behave a little bit different so definitely not something to use all the time if you're a beginner, but a good compromise.

Perfecto.
Timber Wolf 29.03.2018
I bought it along with the violin as I never playe dbefore violin and didn't know how much noisy would it be.

I play 100% of the time on my home, and when there is my partner, i put on the mute, it fits quite nice and I got really astonished how much quieter it sounds. I can play it next to my partner while she's watching TV and I do not disturb her.

It is made of a very sturdy material, it has fallen to the floor several times and it looks like the first day.

As a con, what I don't like it is that it sounds different, but I guess that it happens with everyother mute as you are putting something on the bridge.

A begginer Violonist's best friend

I was afraid the sound was going to be awfull, having read this complaint in some reviews, but I actually found my Stentor St II ( + thomastik strings ) sounds better with it.... :O
The sound is warm, very precise and I found it helped me A LOT with playing in tune and with "subtelty" playing, playing anything that would be a little more subtle than I usually would ( well, Could ).
I decreases the violin sound by an extraordinary amout, even typewriting on my computer is now louder than my violin, which, at my begginer level, is indeed a very good thing.
It also helped a lot with the headaches I got from my very bad playing. Now I can just focus on the notes, the way I produce it and overall, on my technique <3.

I am also very happy to be able to play for hours long - I can play on the sofa right across our bed without waking my wife up.
