Frank, I play through 2x10 also, I love how it cuts! but recently I have gotten a ton of salsa gigs and those guys do not want fancy solos, just tight and in the pocket, its stricter than you might think! My solution is a simple sponge from the kitchen, I carved it so it wont be too tight under some of the lower action strings, and place it near to the bridge. that led me into right hand muting techniques which can produce some awesome tones. the goal in these styles is to sound as much like a DRUM as possible, and syncopate with all the percussion around you.
