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..

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?

My thought is that you should discover the "New Topic" button.

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.

Here's a German company that manufactures felt

"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.
