RezX Resonance Modulator
This product is not so much a wolf eliminator as a tone adjuster. It can function as a wolf tone eliminator, but the intent is to use it to modulate the response and tone balance of an instrument by experimenting with the best placement on the body. Attaches magnetically. Felt covered, to protect varnish.
New Harmony Wolf Tone Eliminators
Available in a range of weights, to match the relative severity of a wolf tone. Attaches to the string behind the bridge, as other models, but does not have a rubber insert. The metal to metal contact allows this product to be lighter, thereby causing less dampening effect on the instrument as a whole. Image shown includes Cello and Bass models. Feel free to order several to try, and return accordingly.

Similar to the Danish model, but made by Super Sensitive.

K&K Bass Max
The Bass Max is an upright bass transducer. It uses a "sandwich" design with two piezos layered together, one facing up and one down. This allows for a quick and simple wedge-mount into a bridge wing and ensures even transmission from the strings and from the body of the instrument. The Bass Max is very sturdy and has a high output signal that is balanced over the whole tone range. It is suitable for both arco and pizzicato playing styles because it transmits a broader mid frequency range. This enables the musician to change playing modes without having to adjust the amplifier. The connection jack is held in place by a special attachment clamp mounted at the A and D strings between string-holder and bridge.
