Dampers dictate the stopping or sustain of the strings' vibrations. Arranged in a uniform row behind the agraffes, damper heads add a wooden accent on top of our Swedish steel strings. The damper felts rest on top of the strings until a key is pressed. The far right sustain pedal raises all dampers to add substance and expand dynamic possibilities. Due to their high frequency, the higher octave strings do not require dampers.
