What is this?

Hello all, Would one of you be able to identify the object this girl is using to deaden the sting noise on the 1st fret?

in the studio i've been using a tea-towel, this just seems more convenient.

Thanks

Looks like one of those "FretWraps" things.

Yeah gtc83 is right i think. it's a fretwrap.

You can use other things though. A lot of people use a wrist sweatband with the same results. I've seen people tie a bandanna around their nuts as well.....

I'd recommend not tying it too tightly

Yeah, it's a Fretwrap. Gruv Gear is the brand.

They are pretty handy for recording. Although, mine mostly just sits behind the nut as a decoration.
