I want to add one more to the list of people here that think highly of Mike's Banjo Mute.
When searching for a mute I wanted one that was well made, durable, would significantly decrease the sound level, not totally distort the sound or buzz, and be affordable. Well, I am happy to say that Mike's scored on all of those.
I am able to learn the banjo now without disturbing anyone and without having to close myself off in a room away from everyone.
The mute is easy to put on and take off. You don't need to tighten it much so I don't think the durability of the nylon screws, as someone else had mentioned, will be an issue.
