I bought the Ultimate Banjo Mute last year (Gee, pre COVID but not much earlier) and I am starting to use it. I have been working too much.
Anyway, this mute does deaden the sound but produces a buzzing noise on my low D and middle G and B strings. I have tried tweeking where it sits on my bridge, I have tried squeezing it tighter, I have tried putting it at an angle on the bridge.
I am just flummoxed about what to do about the buzzing noise. When I take off the mute, no buzzing at all. Now is it a huge thing if I am trying to play quieter, no, but it just doesn’t sound right and that bothers me actually a lot.
Any suggestions??? I mean I don’t want to return it to Ben, but I just don’t know what to do.
