Doesn't live up to the hype

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.

Everything goes Sharp!

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.

Disappointed ... very very very disappointed
Phunkateer 14.09.2018
I love palm muting and muffled bass sounds plus Im very lazy so I thought to save me some hussle AND while Im at it I could use muting sound mixed to other technique, say slap for example, so this gizmo should take care of the muting part and I can be free to play any technique I like except that it wont!
Sound very uneven but more important it rise the pitch of your tuning up to 1/2 tone 0_0 this will depend on which kind of bridge you have!
I bought it used it couple of weeks to figure out weather was useless or completely useless, turned out its completely useless and Im surprised Gruvgear is an awesome brand

Handige gadget voor dat ouderwetse Motown geluid

Houd maar op met dat gepruts met sponsjes onder je snaren, of je hand in een krampachtige bocht wringen om de sustain van je bas te dempen. Nu is er de Fump, die je heel snel inzet. Het principe is eenvoudig: schuif het apparaat over je snaren en je hebt demping, haal het er af en je hebt weer sustain. Opslaan is heel makkelijk: als ik het niet gebruik schuif ik hem over mijn gitaarband, waardoor het secondenwerk is om te installeren.
Een kleien kanttekening: het zou kunnen zijn dat de Fump aan de korte kant is. Op mijn Yamaha TRBX 5 snarige bas komt het einde maar amper aan de G-snaar toe, en ik kan me voorstellend hij voor een 6-snarige echt te kort is. Dat is het enige minpuntje dat ik kan verzinnen; het is ver een heel handig hulpstuk voor een prima prijs, en de bestelling en bezorging verliep weer met de gebruikelijke Thomann precisie.
Ik zeg:doen!
