You *may* remember the thread I did regarding putting a mute on my Thunderbird. It gives me a great 1960s type tone- it dampens the sustain and changes the attack and tone. For what I'm looking for in my main project- it's PERFECT. Due to certain considerations, I wasn't able to use my T-Bird today- so last night I pulled out my Jazz and cut out a section of neoprene foam to create a mute. I got this weird metallic plink to it that I didn't like at all... After a bit of playing with it, I replaced the Badass bridge with the stock bent piece of metal bridge, it's been a year or so since I've run that bridge anyway... I cut a thinner slice of foam, stuck it under the saddle length adjustment screws and dicked with it that way. I realize the Jazz is going to have more "plink" than a mahogany bodied bass- but I can't dial it out- Any ideas?
