Truly amazing! I have been making harpsichords for a living since 1965 (and several years before that not for a living) and I have _never_ used anything other than wool felts and cloths. Indeed, the two catalogs I use don't even offer acrylic! In all honesty I must admit that I have _heard_ of acrylic felt, but it never occurred to me that it could be used in a harpsichord!
