This is one product that does exactly what the man making it says it will do! The demo video that you can watch is completely true - it really reduces the sound of my resonator-equiped banjo to that of an acoustic guitar, or maybe even less. I am really amazed and tickled pink to have this mute now. I will be able to practice ANY TIME OF DAY OR NIGHT because it makes it so quite. And to beat it all, the banjo still sounds great! No buzzing or anything abnormal to destract you. I currently have a compensated bridge on my banjo and it works very well with it, too. This is the best money I have spent, so far, on my new hobby - simplistic design and construction, quality materials, and great customer service have made this a spectactularly positive experience! Do not hesitate to buy one of these, if you need a mute! Don't waste your money on anything else - this is a great product!
