Does it's job however it changes the tone of banjo drastically the way I don't like, making it thin. Apart of that it's OK I think.

I used pliers (through a tea towel to avoid damage) to make it a much, much tighter fit. This made a massive difference and it now sounds significantly quieter. The tone becomes thinner but fine for practice.

A very tight fit on the bridge is definitely key to getting the best results.

Delivered in 2 days. Does the job but pricey for what it is materially. Could fashion your own mute with some Blu Tac / imagination / experimenting.

Does what it supposed to but expensive for what it is - £20 for a 'fur' lined metal clip!
