Damper Felt Kit

£ 35.00 inc taxes


Custom made damper felts for any Rhodes piano. There are 4 different types of felt to cover each section of the piano. There are also two types of kits available; Pre 1975 and Post 1975. Both kits are available for 73 and 88 key pianos. 

The Pre 1975 kits are for pianos with the half wood half plastic hybrid hammers. The Post 1975 kits are for pianos that have all plastic hammers.

The kits come with self levelling glue.

Ensure the Bass, Pre-Mid and Mid damper felts are installed with the grain horizontal. This way you will avoid a chirping sound when releasing a key. When installing the Treble damper felts, turn the felt so that the widest side sits on the damper arm with the grain vertical.

Replacing the damper felts with these new ones will help ensure that your notes are properly dampened once the keys are released.
