A cello mute is a small accessory, usually made of rubber, that attaches to the bridge of a cello and "mutes" the cello by dampening the higher notes. This makes the sound much more mellow than usual. Below we'll discuss the best cello mutes you can buy. Mutes are used throughout many classical pieces and places where mutes are required are usually notated with a "con sordino" or "con sord." for short which means "on mute." When a mute needs to be removed, the music will state "senza sordino" which means "off mute." Cello section with mute
