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 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!

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 was surprised how effective this little mute was. I'm a beginner and am paranoid about family members and neighbours hearing me practice! I find that the sound is reduced by around 50% which has helped improve my confidence greatly.
Only downside with this (and probably any mute) is that it encourages me to bow too close to the strings as it blocks my view slightly. For this reason I try and practice without it occasionally in order to improve my bowing.

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.

As I live in a high rise block of flats, I need a practice mute to avoid getting complaints from the surrounding flats. and my violin is LOUD (I actually use earbuds or headphones to stop deafening myself)

This product is an excellent value for the price. the downside, (which with many full 4 string mutes) its the sound becomes very very dull. That said, it is still useable, and it also depends on the strings you have. Besides, its not as if im performing in front of people when using the practice mute.

It sits easily and snug on the bridge, so it quietens all 4 strings, unlike mutes i had in past which was only the two middle strings.

Please note however, as it does not say in the description (at least at time of buying), that it ships direct from china. So expect it to take a month or so to arrive.

Yes, it does mute. But it doesn't do so heavily all the way to a whisper. Instead it knows about 6 to 12dB off the volume, halving or quartering the sound energy (or more strictly sound pressure level, SPL). But it can make intolerably bad practice tolerable if other measures are taken, closed room and distance! It works by adding mass to the bridge which then vibrates with lessened amplitude, hence attenuating the sound.
