Mike asks you to review his mute after you try it out so here it is: I think this is a great product, just what I was looking for. It really does a good job of reducing the volume of the banjo. I have a new baby in the house and my practice had taken a dive before I got this thing, big game changer. Think of like an acoustic guitar compared to a stratocaster not plugged in, that is about the difference in volume it delivers. The only thing that takes some getting used to is the bulkiness on the bridge. If you are like me and you play with part of your hand resting behind the bridge than it does feel a little restrictive at first. Not a deal breaker though, I think the trade off is worth it. Also Mike had solid communication and shipped out my mute the same day I ordered it. I would recommend this product.
