Where Purchased: Mike's
I just got a Mike's mute. I have used a large soft foam plug in the back before, but that softens the tones. I was very pleasantly surprised when I got the Mike's mute on my old metal pot Stew Mac kit. It kept the tones, but made everything a LOT quieter. It is nicely made and looks good. It was easy to attach to the 3 legged bridge I have on it now. It does not get in the way of my frailing at all. I'm really happy with its performance. I even think my wife is impressed. I was playing with it on while we watched TV yesterday evening. No complaints from her. That's a miracle.
