Leather mutes online shop

leatherviolinmute ChrisYeh.png 3 Prong leather violin mute  

Hand-made historical and modern leather mutes  
for violin, viola & cello.

A new sound world emerges when the mute slides on: An Alter mute sounds special, not just quieter.

Alter mutes are used worldwide, in leading orchestras and period-instrument ensembles.

The three pronged mutes are requested by Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment for use in their string sections.


Apologies, but due to a combination of factors outside my control, I can only supply 3 prong violin/viola mutes, and modern violin/viola mutes at present.

My mutes are also stocked in various violin shops. They may still have stock of cello and bass mutes. If you need especially speedy arrival of your mutes buy from one of the shops below  
UK stockists: Bridgewood & Neitzert, London , JP Guiviers, London The Early Music Shop Saltaire/Aldburgh.

If from European Union, I recommend buying from a local stockist to avoid high import duties post-Brexit.

International stockists: Paganino Germany , Andreas Post Amsterdam, NL , Jelle Boomsma, den Haag, NL ,  
Celga Japan , and Saraband Music, Australia.

Otherwise, if you would like to be informed when I can supply the larger instruments again, please contact me with what you'd like. I'll send an email when I can offer these again.
