Mutes: Mike's Banjo Mute

Submitted by jeanzjazz on 10/18/2017

Where Purchased: From Mikes Banjo Mute website

Overall Comments

Wow, we love the mute. We tried a Recording King and well - not even close  to the quality or sound of Mike's Banjo Mute. On the Recording King the little furry stuff shredded off on the banjo. I brushed it off with a soft lens brush. Anyway we love it and think it's the very best!!!We like the full tone yet quieter sound. Actually just a new sound that could be it's own instrument you might say. It's much quieter than the Recording King and I am sure much quieter than the Jim Dunlop cloth capo that Pete Seeger said would work as a mute if need be! ( In his banjo instruction book found in a dark corner of our library). Anyway we think it's just wonderful and our cat even stayed in the same room while we each took a turn playing as we currently own one banjo- a used Deering Goodtime  in excellent condition which is a logical for us as beginner's choice . So kudos and I would recommend to every beginner and anyone else who wants or needs a mute. I work in the travel industry and it's a must have for anyone who travels with a banjo or is considering traveling with a banjo.  With some banjos and maybe all as we have only tried it on ours- you should  be able to play in a motel or hotel room without distrubing other guests!
