You mean dyeing the existing hammer felts, not fabricating new hammers with previously-colored felts? If you're talking about changing the existing felts, now you're dealing with chemical reactions from the dye components and new behavior (packing? c

Glue up samples of different hammers on shanks. Lift the damper and try to strike the string as close to strike point as possible. Listen to differences. It's not a perfect example but it is an example of what different hammers can do. Easier and mor

As said before by others, this numbering system is used all the time in rock, pop and jazz if you know theory (though you need to with jazz). You can describe your progression by saying something like, "wWell it just a 1-6-4-5 for this section,

There's no native way to print a kindle ebook. So again, you would have to convert it first (again, check out Calibre for this, it's free, BTW). And if you are converting anyway: Try to convert to EPUB, which is the other big ebook format (used by ev
