I used the paper clips on the bridge of my cittern. They don't make mutes for them. Does a mandolin mute exist?
Wacko instrument suggestions seems to be a pattern on this list- I have been told to get bagpipes, drum kits, etc as solutions-reverse psychology.. I hope all on this list are in social distancing at home; I suspect not with the advice to me to procure wacko instruments with which to aggress on my neighbor who was probably traumatized by the film. Deliverance as a child and should have our pity.. I should slop him those Charlie Brown cartoons on the banjo under his door:. pinterest.ca/pin/792563234403152951/ pinterest.com/pin/73676143875388385/
I use alligator clips on my banjos. I used to use clothes pins, but they vibrated off and there was a volume surge in the middle of a tune. I haven't tried them on the mandolin bridge yet, but I think they'd work.
