    For anyone who uses a foam/sponge type mute under your strings. Have you found any easy method, or perhaps a simple device, that makes it easy and fast to remove and then re-install the mute?

    piece of cut sponge, shove it under the strings, pull it out to remove it. takes a few seconds.
  3. I would think that if your mute is so tight it's difficult to get in or out, it's too tight & would affect your intonation.
    Easiest way to insert is by starting up towards the pickup to insert, then push it down to the bridge & the opposite way to remove it.

  4. Just jam it in there with your hand
