soft bell / hard bark attack

Postby uk_aw8s on Tue Nov 02, 2010 2:59 pm

hello from a wet and windy uk.

I am starting my very first refurb it is a 73 mark II stage.
I am wondering if you can tell me the best way to create the soft bell / hard bark attack action?.
I am purchasing some parts very soon and would greatly appreciate any useful hints and tips you may be able to share.

One thing is for sure it's hard to get a soft bell tone out of hammer tips that are hard as a rock. My tonal response improved greatly when I replaced my hammer tips, A certain amount is just proper adjustment.
New grommets , damper felts etc will help your use the dynamic range that is there. Good Luck-Dluxmarron
