Where do you find it best to put the strip? About a 1/3 off-center? Does placing it directly under a lug help hold it in place? What difference in sound do you get with putting a strip on both heads, versus just one head? If just one head, which head - batter or reso?

We do have Jo-Ann's, Hobby Lobby, Michael's, and other fabric/craft stores around Austin, so I sure I can find whatever works best. Any other experienced suggestions are welcome.

I used a circle of felt about 5inches in diameter and glued it to the inside of the reso head with latex paint. Works remarkably well in controlling overtones.
