Dunno if this is the right subforum, I guess this is guitar setup? Did a video on how I mute both the tremolo springs and the parts of the strings that are not supposed to ring (see bottom of post). This mainly resolves the problem of getting tight chugs when playing metal, but I am curious if people playing other genres have this issue and resolve it in a similar or other ways? My approach is to take pierces of cloth and warp over the headstock behind the nut for the part that rings out on every guitar. Same trick for the part of the strings located behind TOM style bridges. For muting the springs on Floyd Rose guitars, I use bigger pierces of cloth pushed under the springs to keep them quite. Putting enough stuff there to ensure the springs are effectively muted. I know there exist various products to deal with this. For the headstock many players use the Fretwraps, which can also be moved higher on the fretboard for lead playing. For the tremolo springs I have seen products where the springs are coated in a layer of plastic or rubber to achieve the muting. Has anyway tried these products and do they work well or can you create something equal with a pair of sciccors and some old cloth and 10 minutes of work?
