Having used 1 and 2 hole Torte style mutes, I would say I can’t tell much difference in sound. The single hole ones tend to wiggle around a bit more when they’re “at rest” down by the tailpiece, but it’s usually not a problem.

I would personally advise NOT to get something like the resonans wire mute, though. These plastic and wire mutes work, but the wire scraping up and down over the wrapping by the tailpiece can cause them to unravel!
