I've just started to play the banjo and figured a mute would be in order to save the sanity of family, neighbours etc. After scouring the internet i came across Mikes youtube video and knew this was the mute for me! Not only does this mute cut the volume way down it also takes away those overtones that non-banjo players find annoying. I can now practice in the same room as my girlfriend without being constantly asked when I'm going to stop. Add to this top notch materials and construction and you have a winner! Thanks Mike.
