Mutes strings well
I recommend this product. I've had them for a few months now and they are made well and do what they're supposed to do: eliminate extraneous noise while recording.
I use different pickups in each guitar, obviously, but it quiets down the active EMG's which make a lot of noise at times. Same thing with my Strat that has Texas Specials and a pre-amp, they can get buzzy at times. This keeps 'em from adding extra noise to my recordings.
Of course I am being silly, and it isn't really THAT hard to mute a string on a bass. However, I came across one passage I could not mute satisfactorily for love nor money. I tried shoving foam under the strings, and it worked, but it was hard to get a consistent sound. I decided to give these FretWraps a try.
You lose the open strings and the first fret, and it is kind of tricky to find the sweet spot where you have just enough tension but not too much. This is at its worst when you remove the thing for some reason, and go to put it back. In spite of those quibbles, these things are just what the doctor ordered. I end up with an almost acoustic upright bass sound, unwanted sympathetic vibrations are kept to a bare minimum, and if I could still grow hair, these things would probably double really well as ponytail wraps.
