One last update to the JP-1 Soundproofing Project – replacing the original foam bottom pad with a denser, colorful blue felt pad.
I used a putty knife to gently pry the foam pad off the little loop of glue. I tried to keep the pad intact, in case I want to put it back.
I have a choice of colors in my pile-o-felt pads (a thrift store find some years ago.
Sketching out a couple bottom pads on the felt sheet by tracing the original pad twice. Remember, when doing this to note which side is the bottom, it’ll be opposite for each one.
You don’t have to glue the new pad in – it’ll be held down by pressure from the frame, but I rubber cemented it in because rubber cement is easily reversed, but is a good sticky stuff.
Oooh, new blue under the keyboard!
My little $5 JP-1 is really sounding great now.
