    For anyone that's interested:

    I've been emailing Edwin at the Bass Connection in the Netherlands regarding purchasing a BassMute for about 2 years now (yes, I am that committed to getting one of these) and he let me know that they should have some stock shortly. From the email:

    "Dear Dave,

    Right now we are re-designing the mute and within 2 months we will be able to make all parts ourself.
    And yes, we are slow because my friend Ellio had some problems with his health.
    As soon as we have stock I will e-mail you again.

    Thanks for your bassy patience!

    Bass regards from Edwin
    Edwin van Huik - Bass Connection BV"

    These things look super cool, and in my research I've not found another turn on/turn off solution for foam mutes that doesn't require drilling holes in the bass. They seems to be generally well regarded here (by those who don't want to just shove foam under the strings). Please support Edwin and Ellio and buy one in a couple months. I'll update when I hear back from Edwin that they have stock.

    I haven't seen any pricing in any of the threads, are these $10 or $1000; and will they fit a lefty?

    Cool, I've been emailing them about this and haven't been getting anything back. I gave up on getting one.

    I feel you....but they could have replied to my emails. They could have simply said, "not available" or "get lost" or something. Unless they're offering a super, smoking deal on one...I'm over it and will do without.

    But, I will keep an eye on this thread, just in case. ;)

    I've been emailing Edwin for a few years and I just keep replying to the same thread. I think he made the mistake of emailing me from his personal email once... Heh heh.

    Agreed - I have a buddy who wants one also, and I told him I'd order 2 when they're taking orders again. I am hoping that by constantly bugging them they'll get it that there's an interest here. Hell, I designed the mods on my P to accommodate this and have wanted one for years.
     
  17. I'm after the Carol Kaye very light damping felt/flatwound/pick vibe for my P Bass (remove harmonics and overtones only)...... will this product be able do the necessary? Thanks!

    These are the best videos I've found demoing the BassMute:







    I think it'll do what you want, but you'll ultimately have to make that call on for yourself.
