I admittedly haven't tried many banjo mutes but I've seen and heard a few. This mute is solidly built, goes on easily and is very effective. It reduces my very loud banjo to about the volume of a semi-hollow electric guitar. A real plus is that it stays out of the way.
It is well-worth the cost and Mike is a terrific communicator. I am hedging my bet by giving it merely a "9" rating, just in case there is something better out there - - but I don't see how.
