The Tourte shaped violin mute is the world's most popular orchestra mute! There are many imitations available, but they are made from inferior die-cut synthetic rubber which sacrifices functionality, longevity, and sound quality. The Tourte shaped violin mute’s elastic molded rubber construction allows for ease and speed of application and removal, as well as superior sound by avoiding rattling and contact with the string where imitation mutes don’t. It adjusts more easily to the shape and curvature of the bridge. It is easily installed and changed and is pulled over the bridge to mute the tone. Used for chamber music, orchestra and personal practice - light muting level. Fits 4/4 - 1/8 size.
