M55 frame noise
I'm currently experiencing a pretty significant issue with frame noise on my M55. Even though the instrument was used before I bought it there were only cosmetic issues and nothing that I saw regarding the integrity of the frame.
The noise is coming from under the Gb, Ab and Bb in the middle of the instrument. Whenever I release the pedal I hear what I thought was metal on metal vibrating. After I made sure that there no loose parts rattling around the noise was still happening. The only thing I could think of that is making that noise is the felt on the bars; the felt appears fairly new and I'm not sure if that could be making the noise or not.
Am I crazy to think that the felt on the damper pad could be dampening the bars incorrectly? Does it sound like I'm missing something? I hope to hear back from you guys soon; I'm tired of my instrument sounding like someone is sharpening knives instead of a chorus of angels!
