Ninomute for double bass and electric upright
DescriptionThis really nicely made mute is a relatively new product, developed and hand-crafted by Nino Ocampo, and distributed by Nordstrand, the pickup-maker for electric basses (I have some Nordstrand pickups on my six-string bass guitar and they are outstanding!) It's based somewhat on a mute they originally made for bass guitar, and thanks to the creative spark of Nino, who is a bassist himself, they now have a version for upright as well.
It has little slits in the dense foam to straddle each
