Hey Guys, At the ripe age of 50, I'm finally learning the art of recording with my own little studio. I tried the old technique of stuffing a piece of foam onder my strings (Dingwall AB-1). I used just enough to slightly deaded the ring. For recording this technique acts like a compressor; gives me just a hint of "thud" that really sits well in the mix. This reminds me of the old fenders with the pickup cover with a foam strip. Somehow, I've forgotten how good it sounds. Any input would be appreciated! mitch

Funny but true story. I bought my Rickenbacker many years ago and thought the strings were really dead on it, almost no sustain at all. I put new strings on it and darn it, same thing no sustain. THEN I notice the little knurled knobs right in front of the bridge with the foam inserts SLIGHTLY touching the strings. It was a real DUH moment.
