    For practise purspose I am using toilet paper instead of the buddha rope I put it at the last fret and practise slap for a higher tension and muting strings, it is better for me to practise left hand slap and slap.
    It can damage the nut of my musicman stingray bass?

    This is what I mean with the buddhar rope at min 31 bill dicken explain it and before he used a toilet paper.

    I am planing perhaps to put another cloth for this purspose, do you know the aproximate width or anything I can use, without damagin the bass??

    you won't damage anything with it no matter what you do here.

    a shoelace would probably be better than TP, though.
  3. And more stylish..:D

    Cant imagine toilet paper being able to damage anything ever at all ever. Well maybe if some fool starting trying to eat some and choked. Lol.
