Simple, economical, perfect. I bought this to be able to lower the volume while practicing so as not to annoy the wife and neighbors, and it works great. It's made of rubber and is flexible enough so that you can bend it easily to fit it over the bridge. One has to be careful of course, so as not to damage the bridge, but it's not difficult. Once fitted, it really muted the sound quite a bit, allowing me to practice without having to fear everyone's wrath. Very happy!

Notes of interest:
- Muting isn't as silent as one might expect, but it sounds to me at about half the volume.
- Rubber has a very strong chemical smell (hoping it will fade with time).

Superb item which I would highly recommend especially for those just beginning music lessons. Be careful when fitting as pressing too hard could damage the violin bridge.

I love it. It works. My last one eventually broke so I got this one. The rubber makes a more mellow sound than the metal practise mute I had.

I live in a block of flats, so it's great for cutting down the noise of my practice. It significantly reduces the volume level of the instrument without rattling or making any other weird sounds. Highly recommend!

What I needed. Now I can practice. The sound is lower with the mute on. One must just be careful putting this on.

It works well and cuts down noise, but what the description doesn't tell you is that it is shipped directly from China, so takes ages to get to the UK. Mine took about 2 weeks to turn up.

the mute came in super quick time and was surprised when it turned up. was nice to begin with looking at it, it looked very well made and didnt look cheap at all for the price (98p) hehe.
it wasnt until i tried to fit it that the problems began. So firstly i put it over my bridge fit ok, not brill and not as snug against the bridge as i though it should. then came the worst noise i had ever heard in my life. after putting the mute over my bridge i began to play and the noise was like a million dying cats. it didnt mute my violin at all. i can play the violin very well but this made my violin sound like it was dying. not impressed so it swiftly got launched in the bin. not happy with what it did but 2 stars coz i guess the delivery was fast and was made to a high standard.

I got it for my daughters to protect their ears and hearing during practice. This fits well, although it looks larger then previous silencers I got. It effectively reduce the sound without obscuring the view from the player. I feel that it muffles the sound better than all the other types I have bought over the years. It fits well into both a full size violin and a 13 inch viola. Reduces the sound so much that the sister can work on her instrument in a different room without being disturbed by her sister's playing. Recommended!😁

I thought I'd been conned when I opened the parcel and found this. It looks like it could never work. In fact it does, brilliantly. Every violin tutor should gift one of these beauties to the parents of every beginner, they will love him/her forever.

For the more experienced player it allows practice to continue into the night without noise abatement orders arriving through the post. Great muffling of pitch without distorting the sound unpleasantly.
