Gruv gear Fretwraps
That or hair scrunchies at $1 a bag.
Darn! Beat me to it... I'd go with these. If the whole idea doesn't work for you, I'm sure you know someone who can use them...
I saved some money by buying a sheet of black craft felt, cutting a few rectangles to stack on top of each other, the higher layers being increasingly narrower so that the whole mute has an arched shape. Place the mute on top of the strings next to the nut, then add some kind of DIY adjustable tensioning band around the bass neck and string mute. The arch shape helps to provide equal pressure on each string, a flat mute has less pressure on the more central strings. Adjustable tension is important as mute pressure is important to tune.
This thread just made me realize the last time I saw a girl or woman wearing a hair scrunchie was probably around 1999 or so. If I did see one recently, it was probably accompanied by a hairstyle from the same time period.
I used a bow tie on my acoustic for a while. It was effective and classy.
Have some class... spend $3.50... get a real one! (slid down to accomodate wall hanger)
GruvGear FretWraps - MTD Logo Single Black ORIGINAL VERSION! @SLaPiNFuNK
I call them underwear...
Victor Wooten used a Scunci for 20 years before Gruv Gear made these and nobody called him out for his lack of class
I have an old baseball sock in my case for this exact purpose... also in case I need to hit a few dingers while at a gig
I have been thinking about the Fump bridge muter - in place of a dirty dish sponge. Not sure if I want to spend $20 on it, tho.
Don't really see the point. "Dampen stray harmonics and overtones". Hell, that's just rock and roll.
Unless they fixed it recently, it's not good.
You can get some MTD fretwraps cheap on BassStringsOnline right now --- They are on sale for $3.50 each. Normal is like a 3 pack for $25, I think. I just bought some, and glad they were on sale, because I don't think they do exactly what I'd thought they'd do ....... LOL
What are those things?, unnecessary.
