    I hear you. I wouldn't want to kill the sustain. I need a mute that quickly rises up against the E and A strings anytime I start playing up on the D and G. :)

    Muting strings is one of the hardest things for me to do on bass. It's something I don't think I'll ever be good at. I somehow don't think any of these muting methods would be for me though.

    Very interesting. Thanks for posting those pics! As you say, could be either Flower Kings or Anderson/Stolt 2. My money is on the latter if I had to bet.
