Mike's Banjo Mute is a whole lot better than any other I have ever used. It does a better job of absorbing all the vibrations at the bridge, and I particularly appreciate that its top plate is designed to tilt slightly back, without sliding off the bridge,so it doesn't make the strings buzz.
This mute is a quality piece of engineering and manufacture, well worth its price. It's light and handy, and it appears tough enough to last as long as my oldest mute, which has served me these fifty years.
