Viola Mute - Viowiess Prizma Disc Mute with Alto Clef
3D printed prizma mutes are created by Wiessmeyer & Son and are available in the Alto Clef Gifts shop with a subtle alto clef just inside the outer 3D printed layer.
Each mute is unique and contains a rainbow of colors. Select your color preference based on the outer layer that is visible to you when the mute is on your bridge.
The disc mute (most commonly known as the tourte mute) became popular with orchestral players in the 70’s for its reliable, rubberized performance. Material choice and technology have improved over the last 50 years allowing us to make mutes that:
Sound better because they filter out fewer overtones during volume reduction (aka muting). We accomplish this feat using 3D-printing magic and material science.
Don’t buzz or rattle on the strings.
Make you the most interesting player dressed in black.
Sound: Moderate pianissimo.
