Mutes: Mike's Banjo Mute

Submitted by cmron on 1/21/2011

Where Purchased: Few months ago online

Overall Comments

I am very impressed with this mute. I live in Brooklyn, NYC, in an apartment building where the walls are not as soundproof as a musician would want. The banjo is a loud instrument. Mike's mute has enabled me to practice at night without upsetting the neighbors or my wife. It's a nicely engineered, weighty and handsome little piece of equipment made of solid brass, aluminum and the screws are plastic. I assume the plastic is a choice dictated by sound transmission and not cost. Given the solid bar of brass, I can't imagine Mike would not have used brass screws if they had the same sound transmission characteristics as plastic. Two thumbs up for this mute, which I use on two open back banjos.

Overall Rating: 9
