The new piece you're playing has a direction for con sordino? Sounds like you need a mute!

Made of ebony, this bass mute (on the left) is the classic three prong style. It's designed primarily for performance muting; by attaching it to the bridge, it dampens the instrument's vibrations and results in a "softer" sound.

It is attached to the top of the bridge with one "finger" between each pair of strings.

The opening is about ¼ inch, which gradually narrows over the 1½ inch slot.

Very nice quality, real ebony!

FITMENT TIP:

It's important to note that bass bridges can vary in thickness; properly fitted bridges will taper quite a bit at the top, almost to a rounded point - and if your bridge has not had this done, this mute will not fit on the bass right out of the package. You may need to sand or file the interior surfaces of the mute, or your bridge, to ensure an appropriate fit to your instrument if this is the case.

This unique mute has a different effect than typical bridge mutes, it mounts on the strings below the bridge.
