richelieu master mute
« on: March 04, 2014, 02:04:46 PM »
Does anyone know of a mute that is similar to the master mute?
My teacher has one on his banjo and I really like the sound it has while muted.

Thanks
Ben

looking at the pix of the Richelieu, it looks like the same line of thinking as the Wright's banjo mute. Unfortunately the guy had to stop making them for health reasons and I could not buy another one. I did go ahead and make my own out of brass. follow this link to a thread where I showed pix of my creation.

I really like how it works as a mute, but you can also get some distinct sound changes with it, depending on how near or far from the bridge you locate it. I bet this part works the same as the one you aksed about.
Having said all that, I don't know where to buy one.

Welcome aboard. 

I'm sorry I can't help you there, I'm not familiar with that one.

Never saw one like that, I like that design.
