Mutes: Mike's Banjo Mute

Overall Comments

Received Mikes Banjo Mute a few weeks ago, immediate response and postage to Australia from Mike and arrived very quickly and well packaged.
The mute itself works perfectly for what I was after.
I live in the top floor of a apartment block and everything travels through the thin walls, the mute reduces the level to a point where I am now able to play using finger picks which was not a option at any part of the day without the mute.
Keeping in mind that this is a MUTE and you lose all your resonator "banjo" twang, but you get to keep the sustain which is why it works great, ending up with a more guitar type sound.
I found clamping on the bridge gives me a clean guitar sound and clamping the strings behind the bridge gives a silenced thin banjo sound.
One very happy customer.
A must have for any banjo player especially the "suburban" players.

Cheers Mike
