Mute, bass, Tourte-style double bass mute

Our Price: $6.99

Quantity in Stock:7

The most popular style orchestra mute, or, as commonly known, "conductor pacifier" for the bass. Snaps around the strings below the bridge, so it stays handy even when not in use for its legendary bass-muting powers. Durable black rubber lasts for decades of making your bass slightly quieter, and setting conductors' minds at ease that the whole section is so visibly muted during those Con Sordino passages. Other notable attributes: they bounce, and they make good non-destructive projectiles for getting another's attention during rehearsal. This career-boost for a mere $6.99! At this price, you can get enough for your whole section.

Love the description, mute is as described January 17, 2017
Reviewer: Steven Hanrahan from , Choose State United States  
To be quite honest I am not sure how much these mute the bass.  Not a whole hell of a lot, so I appreciate the full disclosure here in the item description that it's more of a "conductor pacifier"!  I use a practice mute (which they also sell on here inexpensively) when I need to seriously make the bass quieter, though none of them actually make it quiet enough for hotel or dorm practicing.
