Best mute I've found
I been using the Goldtone UltimateBanjo Mute for almost four years, and the fact I can say that is a testament to its quality.I've tried a lot of different mutes over the years, from homemade contraptions, to technological monsters three times the price of this one. The Goldtone out performs them all hands-down in terms of simplicity, effectiveness, durability, sound, and bang for the buck. To use, you simply slip it on the bridge from the edge, When it place it works like a charm, no buzzing or rattling, and you'd probably have to forcefully stand on your head while playing to make it fall off. When you're done with it, it just slips off as easily as it went on. There are no moving parts, which could be a plus, but leads me to my one complaint.Installed as directed, the mute sits nice and tight on the bass-side of the bride, but the open end of the mute (on the treble string side) doesn't clamp the treble end of the bridge quite as tightly. The result is a bit of unbalance in the muting, with the treble strings less muted than the bass strings. I solved this problem by attaching a tiny, clothespin-like wood working clamp to the treble end of the mute, to slightly tighten its grip on the bridge. With that addition, I get perfectly even muting and consistent tone across the strings.If Goldtone were to come up with a simple way to latch or clamp the open end of the mute onto the bridge, this would definitely by a five-star item. Meanwhile, my little quick-fix gives me the sound I'm looking for, so it's good.

Fantastic Mute...
I couldnt believe the mute worked so well... as I live in an apartment complex. Even with the mute the banjo kept a fantastic tone.
