Dead upright or muted Funk and Motwon sound? I'll have some, thanks.

Sometimes you just need that catgut/dead string sound to get you emotion across. Gruv Gear had an epiphany and came up with this alternative to shoving a piece of foam near the bridge, see Bobby Babbitt or James Jamerson. Worth having in the arsenal for gig or studio work. Think of it as another brush to paint a landscape of music with. Enjoy. I do.
