I just started learning Old Time banjo and my family has reached "bum-dit-ty" overload, so a good mute had to be found. Mike Stidd, a BanjoHangout member makes one called "Mike's Mute". His classified ad describes it very accurately.
It works really well and is very easy to put on and take off. It sure beats stuffing tissue paper under the strings, comes in a cute little draw-string storage bag and is a quality product.
