Well, I for one am glad they chose to get away from the bright thin sound and cut back a bit of volume..

many people don't need or want the extra volume of harder hammers and hard hammers make it impossible to get a truly singing tone..

If you listen to any recording of pianos made before the world wars they used a softer and finer felt..


rhythm must be inborn - Alfred Cortot

I've heard of Australian wool, American wool, and Cashmere wool, but I'm quite surprised to learn of German wool felt? I didn't think the Germans are so famous for wool, and just as surprised there is such a thing as Japanese wool felt. Is this just a case of marketing gone overboard?

Are you on the staff of Steinway Hall - DFW?

Should you be trolling for comparisons to a Steinway product?

On the face of it, this doesn't look good at all.

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.

"German felt" is used by many in the business who do not wish to incur the expense of genuine Renner of Abel hammers.

Very simple.
