I am very happy with Mike's Mute. It is easy to apply, and the muted sound is great. I bought this mute to replace a mute which was pushed on to the bridge (the clothespin idea) and the pressure to apply it would frequently throw my bridge out of alignment. Mike's Mute is an easy fit which slides underneath the bridge and is secured by hand-tightening. The hardware looks very solid and the mute doesn't interfere with my right hand when I'm playing. It also comes with a cloth carrying case.
I can now sit out on the back patio and enjoy banjo playing without worrying about complaints from the neighborhood association.
