This season in orchestra we will be playing the theme from "Schindler's List" with a guest violin soloist. In order for us not to "drown her out", we need to use mutes on our instruments, which I've never done. I'll have to go out and purchase one -- just wondering which kind would be the best for quick and easy installation and removal. I assume they come in different sizes for fractional violins -- yes??? I've seen some that just slide (toward the tailpiece) out of the way, but I'd rather get one that would be totally removed when not in use.
