Where Purchased: Mikes Banjo Mute website
I orginally tried the Nickel Plated Brass Golden Gate Mute and it would not stay on the banjo. I later tried the Heavy Rubber Mute styled like the brass one, it stayed on the banjo but gave a dull sound. I later tried the Ultimate Banjo Mute but would get a buzz on the string near the open end of the mute.
Mike was great to deal with, had a e-mail reply shortly and received the mute within a couple of days. I
I travel a lot with work and thus stay in hotels where other guest don't always appreciate my banjo practice sessions so Mike'
s mute is a good solution.
