Clifford Essex Banjo Tone Enhancer/Clamp Mute

Suitable For 4 and 5 String Banjos

Suitable for 4 and 5 string banjos, the length of the steel barrel underneath the strings is 49 mm for 5 string banjos and 43 mm for 4 string banjos. Hence, if the distance between the 1st and 5th string bridge slots is less than 49mm, then the clamp mute will work on your banjo. Check your spacing before ordering.

Loosen the finger screw and position the mute anywhere between the tailpiece and bridge until you achieve your favourite tone. Each position you choose will produce a different tone

Place the mute over the bridge and the banjo is considerably muted.

Product Details

Simple but effective

Between finger and thumb hold the round barrel under the strings between the bridge and tailpiece. Place the wider top part over the strings then line up the 2 holes. Insert the finger screw and tighten. Finger tight will be sufficient because you do not want it too tight. Experiment with the mute placing it in different positions until you produce your favourite tone. If you place the side of the mute directly over the bridge, it will considerably mute the banjo.
