Where Purchased: On-line (Mike)
I bought this primarily for the sound reduction, so I could practise more quietly (Vs some people's focus on tone) and it IS stunningly quiet. I've tried other mutes, and so far this is undoubtedly the best. As I said, tone wasn't the main thing for me, but the mute certainly does produce a pleasant tone to boot.
I do have one problem in that I had string buzzing on the 4th string when fretted 1-4. Not sure if this is a problem with the bridge or with the mute.
Despite this I still feel so positive toward this product that I would definitely buy a spare.
