The Papp's Mute features spring-loaded tweezer action, designed to more easily mute the treble section. It is a big time-saver for tuning the treble section of an upright. Mute an adjacent pair of strings (such as left and center) by closing the mute and wedging it between them. Mute the left and right string by opening the mute around the center string. Mute just the left or right string by inserting the mute between the string and the adjacent string of the next note. For best results, insert the mute at an angle, between the two hammers next to the one being played, so the mute does not interfere with the hammer striking the strings. With practice, great speed can be attained.
Papps mute is made of Nylon, measuring approximately 8" long. It commes with protective plastic case for easy and convenient storage.
