I was searching for something to dampen my guitars and bass strings, but for me, hairbands and similar stuff didn't quite cut it.

I've never played tennis nor do I know much about it, but I know that there are those dampeners. Would it be possible to install them on the strings to dampen them?

Thanks for your answer.

P.S.

I'm talking about this stuff :

Not sure those would fit on your thinnest or thickest strings, if they are spaced the same and it looks like they'd be time consuming to install and remove.

Using a hairband is quick and easy, but I think it's cheating. Learn to play cleaner, that is all you'd need.

I... don't even know what you would use one of those for? What problems are you having that you think using one of these would solve?

It's really hard to play two handed taping and mute at the same time. Besides, I try to avoid using empty strings because I consider them cheating, so I got no use that anyway.

Think of it this way - I'm making things harder for me, not easier.

I think you're looking in the wrong place for the solution, try this instead:

Also: perfectly possible to mute when doing crazy two-handed stuff, check out Michael Romeo; he's clean as anything and doesn't use any mutes. There is a video of him explaining how he does it on youtube if you want to look for it as well.

mute with your picking hand. elegant way to mute, and not that hard when tapping imo

if you just want to experiment to see how it sounds like, how about trying to tie a sock to the neck (I'm serious). please don't gig like that tho. you never got that piece of info from me
