Sounds good!
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 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.

Straight type:

Compensated type:

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.
