Mike's banjo mute works exactly as advertised. It makes my resonated tenor banjo sound like a quiet guitar. It's easy to put on and easy to take off, and according to Mike you can leave it on for extended periods of time and it won't hurt a thing. Mike does recommend taking it off before you put the banjo in any kind of case (even a soft case) in order to assure no damage occurs to the head. My only gripe is that for some reason the post office decided that the fastest way to Arkansas from Utah was through New Jersey so it took longer than it should have to get to me.
