Where Purchased: Mike's Link from Banjo Hangout: http://www.mikesbanjomute.com/
I have two Banjo mutes from two different companies they are the type shaped in a u made out of brass and felt lined that slide onto the bridge. They work alright, but sometimes you have to fiddle with them to try to eliminate the tinny sound on some of the strings. After a while the felt loses its shape, plus sometimes the felt catches on the bridge. After reading Mike’s Banjo Mute advertisement I decided to try one. I bought my first Mike’s Banjo Mute on January 30, 2020.
It’s simple and quick to put on and take off and the banjo still keeps a sweet sound but considerably quieter. I liked it so well I just purchased my second one to keep at my office with one of my other banjos.
