JPM spring/bridge buzz problem

When i mute all strings after playing some very bassy notes, the bridge/springs seem to ring through. I've heard that some people use pieces of cotton to fill up the bridge cavity, and the problems is solved. Is this recommended? What effect does it have on the trem flexibility?

I've never actually packed out the trem cavity, But if the foam go's under the springs, or between them i don't think there will be any major problems, Possibly a bit of fine tweaking ... I'm sure someone else will be more helpfull :-)

i do that on ANY of my and my friends/customers guitars, but if you're looking for very cutting silence when you palm-mute, put some tape upon the strings on the headstock, or a hair-band to mute them out.
it works.

could you provide me with some pictures, because i don't want to just stuff up the cavity with cotton. Is there a way to keep it a bit 'organised' that you use?

thanks...

thanks a lot!

I did it to all my guitars yesterday, works like a charm.

I've also put velcro bands right above the nut on some of them.

Ultra silent
