Your mute is a very simple, isn't it?

Yes it is, some aluminum 3/8" bar stock, Aluminum L-Iron, 8-32 brass screws, and brass thumbscrews......deadens the sound by around 80%. I seen a photo of Mike's Banjo Mutes and cobbled this together in around 1 1/2 hrs. Neat thing is it stays put when in place and easy to put on and take off...in seconds. Mike's design is fantastic so i cannot take any credit for this.....I am just a tinkerer at heart. Also I wanted something that fit my custom made bridge, and the added benefit is that it can easily fit over a compensated bridge

I made a banjo mute, too. I made 2 type of mute.
One is for straight bridge, another is for compensated bridge. These are easy to handle. Especially straight type effectiveness is very good.

WOW, yours seems to attach much quicker with the overall same results.....your a tinkerer as am I. Always a new way to skin a cat as they say.
