Mutes: Mike's Banjo Mute

Awesome! I'm a banjo newbie living in a house where sound travels. That meant no practicing after my wife and son are asleep. One of my banjo teacher's other students turned me onto Mike's Mute so I bought one, site unseen (or, rather, unheard) and I'm glad I did.

The banjo is much quieter now, though not at all muffled. If anything there is even more sustain with the mute on. I don't understand the mechanics of how it works, but it does. I can now pick away at all hours of the night without bothering anybody. I've taken to leaving the mute on most of the time while practicing so I don't have to worry about the rest of my family hearing Cripple Creek over and over and over again.

Customer service has also been awesome. I lost one of the thumbscrews (I blame my son...) and Mike was quick to make sure I got a replacement.

Go buy Mike's Mute. Your family will thank you.
