This mute lowers the sound level a great deal without changing the tonal qualities, it may even lengthen the sustain. It is very well made with top quality materials.
I use a 1/2" bridge and the heads of the screws interfered with the feet of the bridge. I milled off about half the height of the heads and all was well. You can use a file or sand paper to do the same but since my mill was handy, I used it.
