New Harmony Bass Wolf Eliminator
New Harmony Bass Wolf Eliminators helps eliminate the wolf notes which are a problem for almost all cellos, many double basses, and a few violins and violas. However, the severity of a wolf note varies with each instrument. The wolf note of some basses is minor, or even nonexistent, while others seem almost uncontrollable.
The New Harmony Bass Wolf Eliminator has several advantages. The first is that there are multiple weight options. The multiple weights allow the selection of the lightest weight necessary to eliminate the wolf note. This helps keep as much of the true tone of the bass as possible without dampening or muting the instrument.
A second advantage is that the design eliminates the need for a rubber liner, thumb screw, and a lock nut found on other wolf note suppressors that mount on a string. Installation is simple. The suppressor is pressed onto the string starting at one end of the slot. The suppressor can then be removed and replaced on the string until a position that best suppresses the wolf note. The New Harmony Bass Wolf Eliminator stays in place, but is easy to readjust if the wolf moves because of humidity changes, etc.
In addition to their ease of use, possibly the most important advantage is that the New Harmony wolf note suppressors have minimal or no noticeable effect on the sound of the entire instrument, possibly because there is a direct contact between the string and the brass of the wolf note suppressor.
Weights available from 16gm to 24gm.
