Re: Where to find good felt strips
What TFITTING said. A fabric store is considerably cheaper also. you can get 2-3 times the amount of fabric for the price of the Gibralter felt, and in different thicknesses.
Regarding your other problem, I'm thinking to a certain degree it's a combo of the fabric stretching and the ol' weather contracting etc. I've noticed from time to time I need to pull the bass drum out and tighten up the strips a little to keep the same sound that I like.
