This is a very well-made, functional, and good-looking piece. Mike has hit a home run here. The sound it produces is beautiful and soft enough so you can practice at full throttle and still not preclude someone's watching TV in the same room. Furthermore, the quietness of the sound allows you to hear things in your playing that are not so obvious at full volume but may need attention. Things like pick noise are easier to hear, plus you can hear fully the details of what is happening with your left hand; hammers, pulls, and slides sound like they are under a microscope. This is now an essential practice tool for me. I plan to get a radiused model too for my RB-12. You will not regret buying Mike's Banjo Mute. Plus, Mike is a great guy.
