Overall Comments

I'm a novice on the banjo, which means me playing with finger-picks assaults one's ears. Nevertheless, practicing with picks is a necessity, so I bought Mike's Banjo Mute to make things easier on everybody. Mike's customer service is exemplary: he emailed me immediately after I placed my order to let me know when and how he'd be shipping it, and this was during Memorial Day weekend!

I received the mute in a timely fashion, and it came in a nice little red carrying pouch. I threw it on my banjo and played Cripple Creek. I was immediately astounded how quiet my banjo had become, yet it still sounded the same tone-wise. It's now about as loud as playing an acoustic guitar with bare fingers. I don't have anything negative to say about this product at this time. The only thing I can see being a potential problem is the nylon screws, which may need replacing over time. I highly recommend this mute to any and all banjo players who want to play without being too loud.

Overall Rating: 10
