    yea, so i've been trying to find " string mute" type things for awhile..

    then someone mentioned scrunchies, and i couldn't find those either,

    so i got these other type of hair things called, "pony tailers"

    they are kinda round so i can adjust how much mute happens by rolling or unrolling it..

    i cut them in half and re- attatched with sticky sided velcro so i can adjust their tension on the strings aswell

    nonetheless, i went all out ( queer eye for straight guy style :bag: ) and actually matched my " scrunchie" with the colours of my basses...

    here's the pics.. tell me that i'm lame...






    maybe this will give ideas to the guys who have been thinking, or looking for these...

    they are the new " kleen axe"

    thanks :bassist: :help:

    looks pretty good. kind of reminds me of guys that ride sport bikes and color coordinate their jackets and helmets to match their bikes (I ride a sport bike, but I don't coordinate). If that's your thing, that's cool.

    more importantly, though: does it give you the sound you wanted?

    yea it totally does..

    all i wanted them for was to keep sympathetic vibration down to a minimum, especially when rocking on the 6 string, or tapping on my 5

    they are sweet!~
  5. Victor Wooten uses scrunchies on occasion just like this.

    They look very very pretty :D

    Jokes aside, I think they look really cool. I just might copy your idea!
