This seems like a good place to recommend a lovely piano piece by a composer who died a few months ago, and well-known as a firebrand who wrote some very avant-garde stuff like Eight Songs for a Mad King . But he was also capable of writing pieces

All i know is that Damp Chaser uses heavy speaker cloth for the undercover so why not use it for the top cover? The undercover did help with smaller RH swings under the piano but a wool or speaker cloth for the top had no added benefit in regards to
