Any suggestions for material to deaden the strings? I have a 5-string bass with nylon-coated strings that's a good candidate for touch style but I need a string deadener.

Felt.
Rubber drawer liner (used on 1st gen Megatars).
Cardboard.
Thick cloth.

Thanks for the input; I hadn't even thought about cardboard, but so far that seems to be working well. I took a piece of corrugated cardboard and pealed off the paper from one side. This enabled me to fine-tune it by cutting off a ridge or two as needed and also using fewer ridges on the G string (two as opposed to five on the others).

Now all I have to do is learn how to play this thing.
