Mutes: Mike's Banjo Mute

Submitted by YorkshireWannabeOldTimer on 2/16/2011

Where Purchased: Direct from Mike's website

Overall Comments

I bought Mike's Banjo Mute after reading lots of positive reviews and comments in threads on the Banjo Hangout forums. I use the mute with an open-back banjo with a bog standard bridge. The mute works as well as I could have hoped: it hugely reduces the volume of the banjo while nonetheless allowing it still to produce a very nice and rather distinctively delicate sound with (as remarked by others) enormous levels of sustain. I find the mute to be unobtrusive, too; it doesn't get in the way of my left (nonfretting - I'm a lefty) hand. Also, it's a very nicely made item supplied with a handy bag. Worth very penny!

Overall Rating: 10
