Originally Celeste Rails, also commonly known as Mute, Felt and Silent Rails, were designed to limit the volume of pianos to help mitigate noise pollution. This innovative rail fitting can significantly reduce the noise level of your piano. Perfect for those living in apartment buildings or densely populated areas where noise pollution can be an issue, or just for any house wanting to quiet down their piano at practice time!
Since their inception, the use case of Celeste Rails has gradually evolved, not only do they help quiet down pianos, but they also add a lovely, woody tone to the piano sound thanks to the soft felt in between the hammers and strings, which is a very lovely sound on piano recordings, as well as just soft piano playing. Celeste Rails are crafted to bring a subtle and warm tone to piano music, making them a staple for soft recordings and gentle performances.
