I call them “mufflers”.
Most Banjo Players think that they are in a “Monster truck” with 1,000 HP engines running dual exhaust with glass-packs and all they ever seem to do is want to “floor it” and shatter wine glasses like Ella Fitzgerald did on the old memorx commercials!
And banjo players wonder why the are hard hearing? It’s a cycle that never ends!
haha, just busting your chops!
