What are these for? How have we lived without them so far?
Ask and all your questions shall be answered (by some other guy)...
Without further ado,
They are for muting your strings. If you need to mute but you don't want to install a permanent mute or can't use your hands for whatever reason, this is an option
I want to try these they look like a great idea.
Here's Norm Stockton showing how he uses the Gruv Gear fret wrap:
Great bass playing that Star Spangled Banner was sick thanks for sharing that.
They are nice, inexpensive little accessory. I don't use mine often but I like it for recording and a few songs with lots of string crossings. I practice without it to improve technique then use apply it as needed.
Gosh thank god for these! As a balding 46 year old bass player if i have to go into CVS pharmacy one more time and get the stink eye from the16 year old clerk for buying hair ties to mute my harmonics I'll eventually die of embarrassment
Throw a dozen Trojan Magnums on the conveyor with them and I guarantee the cashier won't make eye contact with you at all
Don't forget to ask for the fitting room.
