It happens over again when you apply new cork to a mute, and moreso when such doesn't mate exactly to the bell of your instrument. I've sanded to fit and then hand rubbed in resin powder, and this latter is not a plastic but that as used for the violin bow. For what it originally was powderized I don't know and the label has so far deteriorated on the can I don't even know who made it. All I know is my grandfather suggested I use it. He used it on the gut fiddle strings he had on one of his instruments. The can I now have was his and I've only about one fourth left. All I do know about using it is that when corks are dry they squeak and this resin prevents it. I hate to use mutes, but have to when the music or conductor says I must.
