Black Chamois / bushing felt

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I might get hold of black chamois leather for gaskets? I've seen this material in a few instruments which were restored in recent times and thought it a great idea - especially for any little gaps between bellows frame and ends.


Likewise if anyone knows of a source for black bushing felt I'd be grateful for a pointer. I know Dave Leese sells this but it's just in one size. If someone knows of a supplier ( piano or otherwise ) who might offer varying thicknesses, I'd be much obliged.

I got some black bushing felt from Steve Dickinson when I was looking for some. I think he only had one thickness but he'd be worth trying.


Other than that, you could try the various organ repair/piano repair/accordion repair vendors and sites
