What to look for in a Mute.
Most string players have at least one mute, and there are two important factors to consider.
- Ease of use. How quickly can the mute be put in place or removed? Orchestral players may have only a moment to install or remove a mute.
- Sound quality. The purpose of the mute is to reduce the volume only, not diminish or sacrifice tone the good quality.
