Just received the mute today. It almost makes the banjo sound like a nice mellow guitar or like a Gold Tone Banjola without the sustain. Anyway, my two kids are sound asleep after an hour's worth of playing in the basement so I have to say that it did exactly what I wanted it to do- mute the banjo. But it still has a really nice sound to it. I used tape on the bridge and stuffed a rag in the back but this was a whole lot better. Very fast shipping. Definitely would recommend.
