Customer Reviews

Exactly what I neededTL:DR--These work very well. Took care of the ambient ring of the Floyd Rose parts above and below the fret board that came through my tube amp and made it into recordings. Those cringy recordings. Buy them.I'm kind of a cheapo when it comes to indirect, accessory type items like this but after buying a new tube amp that goes down to 0.1 watts to allow full gain at apartment volumes through a Krank 1x12, I started noticing the amount of background noise from above the nut and the retaining springs in the back of my Floyd Rose Schecter C-1. Just this awful ring, smiliar to when a snare or tom is untuned and it rings it's note followed by a rediculous twang "yeow" sound, the backlash of the vibrations you want to hear. I also have an Ibanez 7 string that is not a FR but also has EMG's so I picked up the 3 pack and they did the trick surprisingly well.If you have an FR the retaining bar behind the nut makes placement a little goofy but it does it's job well nonetheless. I placed mine higher up towards the tuners where the strings were flat and in good contact with it. The Ibanez was easier of course. And it made a huge difference in the subtle but noticable feedback in the amp during mutes and such. I bought 3 and used two but because one comes out to 6 bucks I couldn't bring myself to cut up the third and place it under the springs in the FR and then my dog ate it so....yeah. The Large sizes that fit 6 and 7, the actual fuzzy part is the right size to cut the bands off of and place under the Floyd Rose springs between the and the body in that cut out. A little thicker than I'd like I'm not sure if it would put extra tension on the springs and thus throw off your tuning but someone should try. I don't need to buy any more. Just gonna use a basic dish sponge lol5Very useful accessory.I got these to cut out the overtones I was hearing when I had my Stingray turned up loud. The strings were ringing out from the headstock side of the nut and the vibrations were traveling down and hitting the pickups.To me, that's a weird problem.Regardless, the FretWraps solved the issue immediately. Plus, they just look great.I play a 5 string bass and medium fit perfect.5Great product, made well, kills noiseI've been looking for an inexpensive set of these for quite a while. I ordered SMALL ones for several electric guitars, Strat, Les Paul, and ES-335 necks. They are a bit snug but work well on all the guitars. Maybe it's ME but I have a hard time NOT making extra noise with my picking hand while recording and this eliminates most or all of that extraneous string noise.I recommend this product. I've had them for a few months now and they are made well and do what they're supposed to do: eliminate extraneous noise while recording.I use different pickups in each guitar, obviously, but it quiets down the active EMG's which make a lot of noise at times. Same thing with my Strat that has Texas Specials and a pre-amp, they can get buzzy at times. This keeps 'em from adding extra noise to my recordings.4Works better than hair-ties, is more convenient too.Studio guitarists and bassists have been dampening strings for as long as I can remember. Nowadays because of YouTube and the prevalence of uber-technicians like Guthrie Govan, many more guitarists are catching on to these old tricks. You might find videos of him or others who use hair-ties to mute strings.Mutes are particularly useful for beginners who have problems muting strings while practicing. Pro players use mutes when doing two-handed tapping or crazy fast and long legato passages. So, if a guitar god like Guthrie can use a mute, there is no shame in us mortals using them too.Over the last fifty years, I have tried every string-mute their is: Herb Ellis's expensive contraption, Emily Remler's slightly less expensive contraption. Both of those work wonderfully, but they require mounting to your guitar and they are expensive. I have also tried a huge number of rubber & foam pads, socks, tape, felt, velcro, leathers, sponges, gels, violin mutes, modified capos.... you name it.Of all the doohickeys for muting strings, this is the most convenient because you can attach it AFTER you put your strings on. Just like a hair-tie, there is no modification to your guitar.Also, you can adjust it easily for partial muting, or move it up the neck for more severe muting. If you really have a problem with those pesky open strings, you can use two. That will kill any unwanted vibration. That is a good thing to know for the manifold legions of distortion-crazed metal-heads out there. Modern amps and effects pedals make electric guitars so sensitive, you can literally breathe on the strings and they will vibrate.These are not exactly cheap but I would not say they are prohibitively expensive either. It would be nice if we could buy just ONE. That would bring the price down a bit. As it is, I keep one in a gig bag in case I have to do some terrifying shredding to impress youngsters or other cases of arrested development.Certain session gigs might require a technically-challenging passage and I don't want to be the guy who makes everyone do a second take. So it's nice insurance to keep these handy.The extras I give to students or just make them use so I don't have to hear their slop.If they were less expensive or we could buy just one, I'd rate this five stars.4Handy accessoryI primarily only play guitar in my studio for media-geared music, so my parts need to be very accurate, with as little extra noise as possible. I found with my sloppy playing, strings are ringing out by association (nearness/resonance of the body, etc.), and sometimes I can't stop them easily without screwing up my parts more. You may be surprised how many seasoned guitarists this happens to, on smaller scales no less. I had an extremely technically-minded guitarist record for me and it was a very delicate part, but occasionally a string would ring out very subtly. You wouldn't notice this live, or even just in general recording situations, but when you're editing audio and listening intently, you'll hear it.These 100% fixed that issue for me. Now, some pros and cons:Pros:Stops string ringStraight forward designQuality seems goodLooks better than your wife/g-f's hair scrunchyCons:When you slide it back over the nut to hit an open string, it always seems to catch on the nut. I suspect this will eventually unravel the stitching.CAREFUL - If you crank this puppy down, it will make your string slightly sharp. I put it on my first fret and tightened it well, recorded my parts well and then started adding VI piano. The intonation was slightly off. I checked my guitar and intonation - perfect. I cranked the Fretwrap back on the first fret and checked my notes. They were now slightly sharp. So, beware!5I LOVE MY FRET WRAPS!After purchasing my first set of Fret Wraps a couple months ago, I was amazed on the effectiveness and quality of the wraps. I picked up the bass a little over a year ago, as I had stopped playing for many years due to focusing on playing piano. My passion for bass was reborn within me and I decided to purchase my very own bass guitar. After many practice sessions, I came to realize I was having some unwanted overtones from the strings that were not being played. It was quite frustrating for me actually. I looked up techniques to help and eliminate the problem. I came to be exposed to Gruv Gear and their products by a great bass player by the name of Robert "Bubby" Lewis. His tremendous skills drew me into watching more of his videos. That when i realized he was using the fret wraps. I looked into them more, until I made the decision to purchase a set. It was night to day. The fret wraps eliminated the overtones I could not quite eliminate, even after putting to use a muting technique, known as the "floating thumb". I totally love the fret wraps! Thank you Gruv Gear for your innovation in the music industry and for thinking of bass players, like me, who have trouble with the overtones. Gruve Gear will definitely be in my top list when it comes to bass gear. Looking forward to purchasing the club bag soon. I hope my review is helpful for other musicians.5I love theseI used to use my Girlfriend's Hair tie on my guitar it works pretty well but then we broke up and she took it back and burned my guitar . I have a new guitar and i love these Its very Quick and easy to adjust as well. Very Much Worth it.Mutes strings well5Great...ButIt's a simple concept, better than a "scrunchie" but two design issues mute pad is a bit wide for when the scale take you "off the top" to open strings and inteferes with fingerings on open chords and the rectangular "D- ring for the tension/velcro strap "rolls" to the long side loosing tension settings. Not insurmountable just if I were CEO of Gruv Gear and did a version two I would make it slightly narrower and change the "D" rings shape to I dunno an actual "D:" ring... would buy again... and recommend.4Not really worth itFirst, and least importantly, the "Stone" color is not white as the description says. It is definitely light grey (which I would expect something called "Stone" to be, but it says it is white so that was my expectation). Color doesn't affect how it works though so that is a minor gripe.They do function as intended. The problem is, I have played with hairbands, sweat bands, even recorded with a sock in a particularly dire time, and those all functioned just as well. I can't really give this product more than 3 stars when its performance is comparable to that of a literal sock. Could by a 10 pack of Hanes socks for the cost of 3 FretWraps and still have 8 pairs left over with a back up for when the dryer eats one.3Nice to have themI don't use these a lot but it is nice to have these. One should know how to play without extra string noise without these, but with these, it helps. Does not remove all open string ringing but reduces it drastically. Drawback of course is that you can't use open notes as pedal notes. A bit on the pricey side though. Used on 8 string Strandberg so far, size: LG. These work.5
