« Hufschmid guitar muters VS gruv gear fretwraps »Published on 06/03/15 at 00:20
First let's just talk about looks, well the as you can see there's really quite a lot of difference. Looks are mostly a question of taste and I hnoestly go for the Hufschmid. It just looks better and more resistant.
Lets talk about how they perform, starting with the gruv gear, it does it's job quite well, but two things really came to annoy me. They have different sizes, that means the muter you have for your 6 string won't fit on your 7 and vice versa, same thing for basses... Second thing that was a bit disapointing was the quality of the velcro, there isn't much to start off with and after a while it just doesn't hold the muter on the neck anymore.
Ok the Hufschmid one now, well pretty flawless to be honest, one size fits all, tough velcro, nice and wide so it really kills out all the unwanted noise (making you feel like a guitar god).
All in all I would say that we have two similar but completely different products, the gruv gear is cheaper but doesn't last as long and you'll need a different size for each instrument. The Hufschmid is better all round, more expensive but sturdier and universal. You can just see the difference in between handmade quality and mass produced factory goods quite clearly.
