Leader Banjo Co Solid Brass 'Booth' 5-String Banjo Mute / Tone Enhancer

We have especially commissioned the making of this super quality banjo mute. It is hand made in the UK from solid brass then polished to a high luster. It is simple to fit to any banjo with the Allen key that is supplied with the mute.

Full description


When fitting, you gently tighten the screw with the Allen key to enable the mute to slide forwards towards the bridge and backwards towards the tailpiece.

In use: Slide the mute towards the bridge for the degree of volume that you wish ...The closer to your bridge, the quieter your banjo!

The beauty of this exclusive mute is that it is not cumbersome and does not interfere with your right hand technique like many other banjo mutes.

Hand Made In the UK.

It does indeed mute my banjo when I need to but it does not "enhance tone". It gave my Gibson banjo a bit of an inferior tinny sound instead.

I've not been playing long and am aware that my attempts to learn a song wouldn't be pleasant for my husband or neighbours to hear. I ordered this mute and a m really pleased with it. I was concerned it would look unsightly on my lovely Goodtime, however, it's only small and well made it looks fine. I like the fact that once it's on, which was really easy to do, it doesn't need to be removed as you just slide it away from the bridge when it's not required as mute. It mutes well in that it's still clear to hear but the sound is gentler and about 50% quieter (maybe like the sound of a guitar played gently). Anyway can practice now carefree.

Difficult to install, but once on the banjo it does an excellent job of reducing the volume. Certainly recommended for anyone wanting to practice with a sleeping baby in their house.
