I know that a lot of old basses used to come stock with some sort of string dampening contraption and that most players don't like them and take them off. Does anybody here have experience with actually using them on a bass. How do you like it? What are they good for? Do they interact differently with different types of strings (roundwounds, flatwounds, tapewounds)? Are there any good recorded examples of string mutes in action? Does anyone make string mutes that I could add to my 80s Fender Jazz Bass Special? Thanks!
