There is guy here in Sweden who makes speakers filled with
unwashed sheeps wool and which are said to sound very good.
I don't know how similar rabbit fur is, though.

No problem, we understood. I didn't understand why the rabbits
had to be loose, though?

Does a rabbits fur sound better if he/she was promiscuous?
Has anyone done A/B testing? It doesn't make sense to me that a "loose" bunny's fur would sound better than a rabbit with good morals who respects his/her body...

You must be one of the frontiers, so try it out and let us know, if it turns out good we will see a lot of DIY'ers comming up with a sudden urge to go hunting for those longearedcreatures

Talking Stuffing

Hi,
Why not use "Dr. Baily's Long Hair"
or "BAF"?
[ BAF= Bonded Acetate Fiber]
The problem with these natural products like rabbits fur or Dr. Baily's Long Hair, I believe it is lamswool, not sure, is that insects and mots eat it. So it detoriates with time........
In my Klipschorns bass chamber I used for years a product sold by Visaton called:
<I>DAMPING MATERIAL
Art. No. 5070
Damping Material made of polyester wool with excellent damping properties. Can be handled and fitted easily.
Packing unit: 125 g (enough for a volume of up to 20 l). </I>

{put "damping wool" into the searchengine of the site}
