    I didn't know powerpads did any dampening. They're just meant to prevent sharp corners in the stringjob, aren't they?

    I think a thin rubber band provides the closest feel. Most of the other manufactured dampeners dampen the strings much more than power pads do. Power pads do provide dampening but the main purpose is that they provide more feel on the sweet spot.
