Knilling 54B String Bass Mute Ebony
Knilling 54B String Bass Mute Ebony: Made of ebony, this bass mute (on the left) is the classic three prong style. It's designed primarily for performance muting; by attaching it to the bridge, it dampens the instrument's vibrations and results in a "softer" sound. It is attached to the top of the bridge with one "finger" between each pair of strings. The opening is about ¼ inch, which gradually narrows over the 1½ inch slot. Very nice quality, real ebony!
