No offense, but if your technique was better, you wouldn't need one in the first place.

^That.
Buckethead has some quite impressive 8 finger tapping, and he doesn't use a hairband or anything to mute.
Of course, Buckethead is the only guitarist I know of that goes above 17 notes per second and doesn't use a hairband (Other people that go that fast always use the hairband).

The main reason for Batio's is, I imagine, that the multiple necks made it much harder to do muting with your hand/lower arm. For most people, there's not really much reason to use one.

Its called the MAB String Dampener

I didn't know what it was called, but I managed to find it in under 5 minutes. Instead of spewing on everyone on UG, try spewing some terms into google.

If that is the case, you might want to disclaimer which sources you have checked in the body of your first post in future. UG... well... can be a little sticky.
