I tried all 4 on my CC Musica (VMI stencil) and thought they deadened the sound completely. With a little experimentation, I landed on using 3 - using valves 5,1, &2. This allowed me to remove all other dampening devices (duct tape in bell) and really allows me to play with more volume without the risk of breaking up the sound.
