When I release a key, the damper felts cause a buzzing noise when they just contact the tine.  This noise gets picked up and amplified.  What am I doing wrong?  It is a set of new VV felts and I've tried adjusting them up and down.
So, I've owned a trashed Rhodes (1979) for a few years.   So far, I've re-tolexed, done the case hardware and legs, and put in new hammers and dampers.  I've also had the bad pickups replaced.  The mid-high notes still seem to play softer than the rest of the board and I get a little secondary noise (that the pickups catch) on one low note.  Kind of a secondary noise. I've adjusted the dampers and tried to move the pickups in on the soft keys. What is the best next step for regulating the action?
