The Grappelli Mute

Based on an antique design, this lightweight mute instantly gives you the unique tone of Stephane Grappelli's later years. Whereas many mutes only cut the volume of your instrument, this model brings out a warmer, smoother tone by reducing certain frequencies resulting in an authentic and pure Grappelli sound. Smooth, sophisiticated and pleasing to the eye, it fits easily in your violin case or pocket.

Available in 1mm and 2mm width to compensate for different bridge thickness, or use both sizes on the same violin for a different tonal effect

“This mute contributes a new sound to the violin spectrum and I will certainly be using it on a future album”

-Tim Kliphuis
