Clip-on mute for violin/viola- Snakewood/Beech/Metal spring
by String King
String King presents a completely new type of a mute which makes it possible to vary the sound of a muted instrument. It was inspired by a well known everyday tool but it was improved both practically and aesthetically.
Normally one can put a mute on a bridge in only one way, but MUTEY can be put on the bridge at a variety of depths, which means that timbre and loudness of the sound can be varied too.
Thanks to its spring mechanism you can put it on and off without any undesirable noise.
The rear part of MUTEY (with the cavity) is broader than the front part, which guarantees that no part will touch the vibrating string in front of the bridge. You don't have to think about it - MUTEY glides in smoothly in the right place.
When not on the instrument you can put on your clothes to be able to reach it fast.
