Cobbled this together and it works just fine. Just a piece of aluminium flat bent into shape and a piece of leather one side and velcro the other. No reason for velcro one side, just what I had to hand. Great thing is you can clip it on the side of your banjo too!
A banjo mute is a great gift for your significant other. Now the folks on forum can take your idea and personalize it. That is cool how it stores out of the way.
That’s pretty clever. I’ve already invested in one from the general store. It works great too, but if something happens to it, I’ll make one. Thanks for posting!
Thanks all, i may customise this to look a bit more attractive , but hey its only for me for when I practise on occasion late at night.
Has anyone seen a banjo mute for a compensated bridge?
No I never have, but it would be interesting to make one. I may have a go.
A Mike’s Mute would probably work on a compensated bridge. To my knowledge, no mute on the market reduces your volume more than Mike’s.
I forgot about Mike’s, yeah that’s a really good mute perfect for a compensated bridge too.
Just made another, this one I managed to get a bit straighter, the other had a slight wave as seen in the pic. (not that it effected how it works, I’ve used craft foam instead of just felt for the dampener and it works a treat.
You should start selling them!
I may start a production line
