Ebony Violin

How can I fit my violin mute?

I have an ebony three pronged violin mute. The mute is impossible to fit onto my violin strings. It fits so tightly that I would have to force it on and taking it off would probably rip out the violin bridge. Anyone know how to fit the mute on?

Mute in question: http://www.amazon.com/JSI-Ebony-Violin-Mute/dp/B000F3FQOM

fit on your strings? it shouldn't really touch them, but maybe that's not what you mean...

do you have a full size violin? if you have a smaller one, this would be too big because the spaces between your strings are smaller.

do you have a "student" instrument? they frequently have bulkier bridges and this may be designed on the tight size and not fit your bridge.

i hardly ever see anyone use this style anymore.

are you using it for real "con sordino" playing in orchestra?
if so, try one of these, they are easy to use and flexible enough to fit different sizes of instrument and bridge thickness: http://www.amazon.com/Shaped-Tourte-Violin-Viola-Mute/dp/B000F3JO86/ref=pd_sim_MI_1

some people like these, but i find they rattle around more when not in use and are more likely to fit badly: http://www.amazon.com/Round-Tourte-Style-Violin-Small/dp/B000F3FQOW/ref=pd_sim_MI_3

if you are using it to practice more quietly and not disturb neighbors, try this kind, its even quieter than the ebony: http://www.amazon.com/Glaesel-Violin-Ultra-Practice-Mute/dp/B0002II6V0/ref=pd_sim_MI_1

this one is really quiet, but you have to be careful that you don't lean over and let it fall off and damage your instrument. also, they don't always fit right either because they are not flexible: http://www.amazon.com/Anton-Breton-VP-50-Violin-Mute/dp/B001FB5Z6C/ref=pd_cp_MI_1

if you need something right now, there's this trick we do when we don't have a mute... fold up a dollar bill until you have a 2cm strip, then weave it over and under your strings behind the bridge. when you slide it up against bridge it will act as a mute because it dampens the bridges vibration. (this can work just as well as a regular mute. it just doesn't look too nice)
