I looked at several mutes, i.e. Gold Tone, etc., and found Mike's Youtube demonstration impressed me the most. I'm a beginner so I need a mute to practice correctly but at lower volume; I don't want to not to annoy anyone and don't want to get into bad habits playing too softly either. Mike shipped the product promptly. It comes in a nice little pouch; it is well crafted and looks very nice on the banjo. It attached to the bridge in seconds and it works perfectly! This was just exactly what I wanted. This is a must have for a beginner and it looks like it will last for a lifetime.
