Thread Name: Tech: Autoharp Bar Felt - Quality
Subject: RE: Tech: Autoharp Bar Felt - Quality
NHDave...I see from looking around that alot of the felt is now self adhesive. I have some of the old high felt in strips which is not self adhesive or if it is I used glue anyway. Dr. Schol's foot pads are reportedly a good substitute or I would go to one of the harpmakers and ask what they use after explaining what you don't want. Try Fladmark, Bob Lewis, Drew Smith, George Orthey, or D'Aigle. I have to find a new luthier now that my dear friend Mark Fackeldey is deceased. I like the Fladmark and D'Aigle harps. Bob Lewis will be more than happy to tell you exactly what is best for your needs. Google those names with autoharp, attached. Good luck!
