Mutes: Mike's Banjo Mute

Submitted by azflyman on 10/5/2011

Where Purchased: BHO, from Mike

Overall Comments

This mute works great! I was a but put ut by the plastic screws but I see the purose in the design, it protects the bridge from being crushed by overtightening. The thing that shocked me is that the banjo no longer sounds like a banjo. Kind of like stumming a chord on an acoustic guitar and strumming the same chord on an electric guitar. A very radical difference but I would say the volume drops by 80-90% in my opinion. Works well with a standard bridge with 3 feet and 2 openings but I don't think it would work well with some bridges (spillway with numerous small holes). It might be a hard fit with a moon bridge if there is much curve, not sure. Overall a quality product, yes I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

Overall Rating: 9
