This is a video of the Charlie Kunz band featuring Teddy Brown. It's cool to watch just to see teddy.
But go to 10:22 and watch the vibe player. He dampens with his finger. Why? I think because there was not pedal on the vibraphone.
That blew me away. Am I right?
That's a great video!…

That's a great video! Helpful for my question of when the first dampening was (even if it was with a finger, not mallet). I feel like there was a pedal though. Halfway through the phrase at 10:20, some of the notes disappear, and unless there was some other mechanism, I'd assume he pedaled right then. Unless it's some weird audio old-recording thing. But I'm not sure!
