Hi everybody.

I am living now in an flat and I don't want to bother my family and neighbours with my bass - I play horrible :-( -, so I have decided to buy a mute, but I have seen several types: tourte, sihon, rubber, ebony, and even gary karr sells one.
Can anyone explain me the differences between all kinds of mutes? I think that not all of them are practice mutes.
Wich kind is better? How much do they mute?
I want to use it only when playing with the bow, so I need to put and remove it easily to play pizzicatto.
Any idea?

thanks in advance.
