GUEST,Maurice Lever on Bottom of Tenor Banjos? (14) RE: Lever on Bottom of Tenor Banjos? 15 Jun 02

I believe it's a mute, or damper, to soften the sound. It's positioned there so you can operate it with your knee without interrupting your performance. When you move the lever it brings a felt pad into contact with the underside of the head (ie skin)....pity they don't put them on bodhrans...
