Weights Enhance Vibration Control
Brass weights on top of gear add 50% to the good effect of our Brass Footers. We strongly recommend them to anyone using footers, particularly ours.
In the early '90s, Pierre used to put lead weightsboth discs and blockson top of all of his studio electronics and stereo equipment to kill enclosure vibrations. Using em with CD players, amplifiers, etc., gave music more punch. But that initial satisfaction was blown to bits when he tried brass. Brass weights carry even more punch than leadand theres more sparkle in the details with much better dynamics. We've tried the other common materials too (sand, stone, iron, VPI bricks, Shaktis). Theyre better than nothing, but they dont compare with brass.
