Where Purchased: online, Mikes Mutes and BHO classifieds
I own two Mike's Mutes! The first one was purchased from Mike's website after reading the reviews here at tHE BHO, and the second was purchased from an individual in the BHO classifieds (it didn't fit his bridge).
I also have a Gold Tone brass mute that slips on the bridge under the strings. This mute takes a bit more care to install correctly than the Mike's Mute, and the MM quites the banjo down better. The Mike's Mute really has made me a better player - I can now practice more without offending the family. If you are looking for a mute, this is it. Very solid construction too. Thanks Mike!!
