Palm-muted bass tone. Minus the palm.
Free up your muting palm and discover a new path to the old school. The Fump is a simple muting device that slides over the strings against the bridge of your 4- or 5-string electric bass to instantly recreate that sweet staccato sound - without using your palm!
The Fump was born as a natural step following the wild success of our FretWraps, and from numerous requests from players like you. If you've ever stuffed foam under the strings to try to achieve that coveted "old school" muted or upright tone, then you might give the Fump a try! While we definitely encourage mastering proper palm muting, the Fump simply opens up possibilities to discover new techniques and gives your hands the freedom to "dig in."
A few things to note:
The Fump is such a cool little tool to have that slides on and off with ease. It’s perfect for players wanting that staccato/percussive sound from their bass.
Review for Mixdown Magazine
This is a very clever and versatile device. I use on my electric bass and when plugged into an amp, I can get a wide range of mutes, I can even make is sound like a double bass.
I love this thing. It's great for getting a consistent mute effect across all strings. Normally I'd mute with my palm and pluck with my thumb but that drastically alters the feel I normally have when plucking with my fingers.
If you want your bass to thump without the hassle of taking an ugly piece of sponge or struggling taking out or put in a piece of foam every time you need to get "that sound"...this is exactly what you need. Well made, easy to use. Highly recommended.
