    I just got my new wilson n six one 95 (18x20 string pattern) and with it came the long rubbery string dampener that goes across about 5 strings. I haven't used a dampener for 15 years. Why should I use this one?

    If you have never used one then don't. It just dampens the stringbed some. I personally dont use one at all.

    It comes with an nTrap dampener.

    It's all personal preference.

    People say that it "reduces" vibrations bad for your arm, it does, but only to a small extent.

    In truth, dampeners are used mostly for a slightly more "solid" feel and reducing that pinging noise.

    It won't stop the larger vibrations.

    Try it, and see if you like it. If not, then don't use it.

    IMO, they really don't make too big of a difference.

    I hate the pinging noise, which is why I use gamma worms
