REPLACING WORN

DAMPING FELTS

WE TREAT THEM ALL

WITH THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE

Underneath the manual keys and the foot pedals there are felt dampers. These reduce noise while the organ is being played. Over the years this felt gets compressed and hardens. When this happens you can hear knocks and taps as the organ is played. The noise is often worse from the pedals as these often have a strong return spring that can thump the pedals back up to the resting position.

 

It is a relatively straight forward operation to replace the felts and eliminate noise during playing. Any sideways movement will also be removed during this process to ensure quiet operation.
