Same way you get it today, padding, no front head (can use a screen head on front).

woah !!!!!!!!! i've never seen so much padding !!!!!!!!!

is this common ? it seems like that much padding would kill 90% of your volume.

is more padding = more fluffy the maxim that should apply here ?

i very much like that pictured idea...it could be cut to perfect width and spiraled for as much or as little fluff as desired !!!!!!!!!!! do i have the right idea ?

ps: i love Walking Libertys

get you a Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket. I hear that's what they used on some of those disco recordings. Or, maybe a frisbee.
