I like Gruvgear products. I saw the Fump in their social media feed and thought it was a neat idea, so I ordered one. Colour me unimpressed - it's distinctly unsubtle and it messes with your intonation. It's well made and rugged, but it needs to have softer material or something. It doesn't replicate palm muting unless you have lousy palm muting technique! Nice idea, but poor execution.
I was very excited to receive this product based on all the video I've seen but unfortunately the product doesn't deserve all this and doesn't do what it is advertised for. CONS: - all notes go sharp after putting the fump. you will require to retune and obviously you cannot do that everytime you use the fump! so that in its own is enough to make the fump useless to many. - compared to palm muting , it chokes the string. personally, i like the palm muting sound more.
I usually like gruvgear products but this one is not worth it.
