Invented by Terry Bech, a professional violinist with the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra in The Netherlands, Bech Magnetic Mutes are used by the world’s leading solo artists, professional orchestras, chamber ensembles, and amateur musicians. An integrated magnet connects the mute to a clip on the tailpiece. This allows the player to engage and disengage the mute quickly, even when the music composition allows little time. It keeps the mute in place, reduces risk of loss, and avoids any unwanted resonating noise.
A combination of acoustic design, hi-tech rubber and magnetic ingenuity ensures the highest quality of sound. The Bech Magnetic Mute allows the voice of the instrument to resonate even while muted which ensures the highest quality of sound. Disengaged and clipped to the tailpiece, any unwanted vibration noises are avoided. The Bech Magnetic Mute is a breakthrough in mute technology. The hi-tech rubber is engineered for durability and lasting flexibility. This guarantees a continuing good fit on the bridge. The unique design prevents string abrasion, stickiness, and rosin contamination.
