Leather mute for baroque violin, viola, cello and double bass


From an Italian template I produce  leather mutes for use on Baroque violins, violas, cellos and double basses.


The advantages:

  • Gentle muting, the beautiful tone of your instrument remains
  • The mute can be adjusted to your individual arching bridge height in the workshop
