The most important feature of a mute is that it mutes, Mike's mute does that very well. Additionally it should not cause a change of tone or tuning. Mikes mute gets an A+. Its also easy to install and remove and stays put. It does not interfere with my picking. Its also nicely made, no one will ask you "what is that ugly thing".
Mike is no farther away than you phone and is friendly and helpful.
If you need a mute to keep your wife happy, Mikes mute is what you want.
