I received my first set of 88 grommets from Mike just last week and plugged them into a Rhodes for one of our customers. In the past, I have tested grommets from other Rhodes parts suppliers and from hardware wholesalers and I must say that these are hands down the finest grommets I have ever used.

The number one thing that really resonated with me working with Retro Linear's grommets is that the quality control is unmatched from other grommets that I have used and tested in the past. In addition to being the perfect specifications for the Rhodes' tone bars, there wasn't a single hanging tab of excess rubber, every grommet is perfectly centered, and they are all perfectly uniform.

I highly recommend these grommets for anyone that is servicing their Rhodes.

And as a side note: I was extremely pleased to learn that Retro Linear manufactures their parts in the USA.
