Mutes: Mike's Banjo Mute

Overall Comments

Yet another happy camper! The mute arrived 10 days after I ordered it; a really nice email from Mike asking how I heard about the mute-then ANOTHER to thank me for my reply!

I consider myself very lucky indeed to have discovered this GREAT piece of banjo kit straight off; from what I've seen, some people have spent a lot of time and money to get to the stage I'm at now; a great sounding instrument that I can " calm down" when I need to, either for practise or for singing to ( singing some songs with a banjo is the equivalent to playing lullabies on bagpipes )

The banjo sounds great when muted - still all the tone and sustain that I want, but no projection. Yes, it's different to an unmuted banjo, but the difference does not diminish the sweet sound. Beautifully crafted - I'd like to bet mike has a drawerful of prototypes somewhere! Easy to fit: easy to remove. Easy to like. Nothing to dislike.

As I said at the start - nice one Mike!

Overall Rating: 10
