Good tunable mute, well made with an attractive unfinished look. I purchased this along with a Marcus Bonna mute, and ended up keeping the MB and returning this one (the prices are the same). When I first tested the two, I couldn't tell any difference, but with longer evaluation it was clear the MB had a louder, clearer tone than the Horn Crafts Sylva. I kept the MB and returned this one (Horn Crafts). I think the Horn Crafts darker done might worker better for some, and I preferred the unfinished look to the highly varnished look of the MB, but the MB sound just worked better for me. (comparison tested on a Yamaha 868)
