Mutes: Mike's Banjo Mute

A great piece of kit and a must for any picker who wants to retain friends and family! So easy to fit and doesn't come off. The jo sounds fine with the mute fitted - loud enough to hear all my mistakes but quiet enough so no one else does! Excellent service too - i ordered online and the mute arrived in the post a few days later and i am in the UK. Great work Mike and thanks.

I am totally new to music - in terms of playing an instrument and my desire is to be a musician with the 5 string Banjo as my 'weapon' of choice. If you want to be a musician then John is the guy to take instruction from - if you want to play a Banjo - you can teach yourself from books and tabs but you'll have a hard time playing in a band unless they happen to play one of the tabs you have learnt by heart! John teaches the fundamentals of the Banjo to get you to where you can play the instrument not just learn a tab and repeat the same thing over and over. The lessons over the internet are great value for money - convenient for me and hopefull JB and I know i will learn a lot more with John than i could ever teach myself. Is there a downside - yes a couple, SKYPE is not 100% reliable and i can't shake John by the hand to thank him for all he is doing for me. Top man, top marks and no complaints at all.
