Goldtone IUCCI Banjo Mute
The Gold Tone Iucci mute is a replica of the classic 1924 mute developed by Mr. Iucci. These mutes were popular at the time for tenor banjo but could easily be adapted for 5-string. This mute easily slides on the bridge similar to the Gold Tone “Ultimate Mute”, but sounds better and has more weight, which equals more sustain. Now you can enjoy the quiet tone of your banjo for unlimited practice!

Does not add that metallic sound
A smart accessory to own, Mike’s Banjo Mute reduces volume to make practicing quieter. Parts are cut, polished, and assembled by hand and individually tested to ensure
The force required to attach or remove some mutes can move the bridge.
Instead, Mike’s Banjo Mute goes on and off easily. The hook of soft aluminum holds firmly but gently to the cutouts in the bridge while solid brass rests on top to very effectively mute the banjo to a level that won’t disturb others in close proximity.
Fixed nylon screws that won't move or scratch the bridge hold it snugly in place.
With the mute on, your banjo plays slightly quieter than a guitar at normal volume so it becomes a great play along instrument.
It generates no string buzz or metallic sound and offers an enhanced sustain.
It relieves your spouse of hearing the 300th rendition of Foggy Mountain Breakdown, or the fumbling twangs of a song in early practice.
It’s great for midnight and early morning pickers and those playing away from home in a hotel room or office.
Mike’s Banjo Mute completely detaches from the banjo for regular play to avoid any unwanted overtones.
Mike’s Banjo Mute has a low 3/8” profile above the bridge, avoiding any interference with proper hand positioning during play.
With its convenient petite size (2 ¾ x ¾ x ¾) and protective storage bag, Mike’s Banjo Mute fits in any case and easily travels with you wherever you go.
5-string standard for flat fingerboard and bridge with storage bag 45.00
5-string radius for arched fingerboard and bridge with storage bag 45.00
4-string tenor for narrower 4 string bridge with storage bag 45.00
This mute works very well, it seems to mute more than others reviewed which is what keeps peace in this household.
Works Great - even on a compensated bridge I had been told that there wasn't a mute that could work with a bridge like the one I have. I saw in the literature that this mute would work on most compensated bridges, so I ordered it. It works just fine on my bridge. It really does go on and off easily. And it not only makes the banjo quieter, it gives it a completely different tone quality that can have real musical applications.
