About a year ago I purchased Mike's Banjo Mute for a 4 string Bacon and Day banjo. At full cry it can almost peel paint, but with the mute it produces a pleasing faint guitar sound, allowing me to even practice at night when my wife's asleep. It worked so well I just got another for my tubaphone 5 string, with the same results. These mutes are the real deal; they go on easily, do not interfere with playing, and really cut the sound!
