Banjo mutes: Mike's Banjo Mute

Submitted by phillavery on 7/16/2015

Where Purchased: from Mikes Mutes

Overall Comments

Simple to use and attach, adds sustain and quietens the Banjo and makes it almost sound like a Guitar - Love it, and best of all - a dont get complaints from 'She who must be Obeyed' whilst the TV is in full swing - and you can make weights of a different size if you feel like experimenting .... looks heaps better than Wooden Clothes Pegs too .... they're a good thing, and a good thing never hurt anybody !

Tailpieces: Fults 1934 Tailpiece

Submitted by phillavery on 5/24/2015

Where Purchased: On line from FULTS

Overall Comments

I recently purchased this Tailpiece for my Washburn B-14 Banjo, a well made instrument with the whole exception of the original Tail piece which was very poorly made with Burrs on the underside of the Tongue which had not been cleaned up before plating, It exhibited unpleasant overtones on the first string.

Upon fitting the new FULTS 1934 Tailpiece with an F20 mount, superbly manufactured and extremely rigid, the overtones disappeared  when I adjusted the head of the Tailpiece close to the Banjo Head. - this is the nearest thing to tying the strings off to a Railway line, its so strong - there is absolutely no movement when it is pressed down with your thumb, unlike many lesser makes of Tailpiece and this is reflected by the superior tone ... I'm very happy with it and have now ordered a Pro-5 for my Recording King RK-36 .... Although they may considered expensive when compared to other makes, the results are outstanding ...I'm definitely a big fan of FULTS .... Phill Avery
