Hassle free ordering. Mute arrived in the post promptly.
As a beginner, I tend to pick very heavily and as a consequence was banished to practice away from the family. Wanting a solution that would allow closer family contact, I looked for a solution and found Mike's mute. I am very happy with the results, and the banjo is now almost as quiet as an electric solid body guitar. It gives the banjo an interesting new tone and allows me to practice with little disturbance to others. It get a 9 out of 10 as it was a bit of a tight fit between the strings when mounting, but no problem once mounted.
