Where Purchased: Ordered it from Mike
I am new to the banjo and have been practicing. Being a beginner I suck. I suck VERY LOUDLY !! That hadn't been a problem but recently I have been forced to move into an apartment...I hadn't been able to practice at all and was getting lonely for it... So I just Googled "banjo mute". Mike's mute was first in the search results. I read about it and then decided to do some research. It's not the cheapest thing out there, but I didn't want something that was hard to put on, or something that would move the bridge or damage the instrument or get in the way. It seems this mute comes highly recommended so I bought it..I received it in about 3 days. It was well packaged. It looks like it's well built and will probably last forever. It's very easy to put on. It really does quiet the banjo. It gives the banjo a nice "chiming" dobro like quality that I really like to listen to. I pray that it prevents me from getting kicked out of my apartment. No one has complained yet and it's been 3 days! Thanks Mike!
