    Anybody remember the Lycon double bass strings of the 1950's / 60's? The strings came with 'Tone Filters' which you put underneath the string on the bridge. What did the filters do?---mute the string a little?---for practice purposes????? Lycon Tone Filter.JPG
  2. Tamed high-end transients. Pirastro makes those as well.
  3. And they ven look like a slice of a rubber tube, so you should be able to cut them yourself out of one.
