Where Purchased: Mike's Mute web site
Being a new picker, this is the first mute I've tried and I am totally impressed. I've been using two wooden clothes pins on the bridge or a sock under the strings. Mikes Mute is very easy to put on and produces a very clear sound. I can hear more of my mistakes, so it will force me to clean those up. Best thing is I can practice in the house again! I asked my wife if it worked and she replied "Were you playing? I didn't hear a thing." My daughter was upstairs sleeping and she didn't wake up either. Now I can get the practice time I need after everyone's asleep. Thanks Mike for a great product and the fast, personal service.
