The "Perfect Pitch Capo" works great up to the fourth fret - good sound and no detuning. From the fifth fret on I get problems with the reversed capo: It becomes difficult to me to fret the strings just after the capo. I mean if the capo is on the fifth fret I can't fret easily with my fingers on the sixth fret. The capo overpasses and covers the space that I need to place well my fretting hand (sorry for my English!).

Where Purchased: Mike's banjo mute
I live in the south of France and banjos and their accessories are not easy to find here.
I was looking for a mute on the internet and ordered Mike's banjo mute on April 19th for less than Euros 30.- shipping included.
Mike wrote me a mail that I had to wait probably 2 or 3 weeks. Yesterday, April 25th, after only 5 days it arrived already in my letter box. Probably faster than if I had ordered a product in Europe.
Mike's banjo mute works as well and efficient as described. It is easy and fast to put on and take off and it really reduces the sound output, but the banjo is still very pleasant sounding with all five strings equally muted.
I am very satisfied with this great product.
Thank you, Mike!
