Bonded Acetate Fibre? Used to dampen resonances in speaker cabinets, also partly converts adiabatic pressure changes to isothermal pressure changes so effectively enlarges the cabinet. See gas laws.

Based on the info in the post I mentioned I think it was more of an event than a subtance.

Probably the Burning Amp Festival. It's a major fun yearly event in San Francisco.

I couldn't easily find the reference to BAF in the other thread, so I tried to be helpful anyway. Is BAF wadding still used, or is there a modern alternative? Just curious.

BAF - airport code for Barnes Municipal Airport - Westfield - Springfield Mass.

Well - that answers one place where "BAF" is at.....

While you are there you can visit the basketball hall of fame - or look in on my brother who lives in the area (I had the sense to get outta there!!!)...

BAF = British Accoustic Films Ltd.

-- I believe they were taken over by The Rank organisation along with Gaumont Kalee projector makers, in the '60's.

Made sound reproducing equipment for cinema projectors and amplifiers etc....

--Very well made gear, still giving service in many smaller cinemas in UK,--at least the mechanical/optical sound-heads they made, if not some of the amplifiers too....
