Mikes Banjo Mute

New product

A smart accessory to own

Mikes Banjo Mute reduces volume to make practicing quieter. Parts are cut, polished, and assembled by hand and individually tested to ensure consistent quality.

The force required to attach or remove some mutes can move the bridge. Instead, Mikes Banjo Mute goes on and off easily. The hook of soft aluminum holds firmly but gently to the cutouts in the bridge while solid brass rests on top to very effectively mute the banjo to a level that wont disturb others in close proximity. Fixed nylon screws that won't move or scratch the bridge hold it snugly in place.

With the mute on, your banjo plays slightly quieter than a guitar at normal volume so it becomes a great play along instrument. It generates no string buzz or metallic sound and offers an enhanced sustain. It relieves your spouse of hearing the 300th rendition of Foggy Mountain Breakdown, or the fumbling twangs of a song in early practice. Its great for midnight and early morning pickers and those playing away from home in a hotel room or office.

Works Great

Works Great - even on a compensated bridge I had been told that there wasn't a mute that could work with a bridge like the one I have. I saw in the literature that this mute would work on most compensated bridges, so I ordered it. It works just fine on my bridge. It really does go on and off easily. And it not only makes the banjo quieter, it gives it a completely different tone quality that can have real musical applications.
