Although I have known Kevin for quite some time, I would like to offer him a warm welcome to the GMB.

Here are 4 photos of this rare and early piano insulator from Kevin.

They will be posted on the GMB RD database shortly.

As I failed to say properly last time, that would be useless as a piano insulator with these tiny feet (like stiletto heels). It would mark the floor badly and likely crack with any weight on it. Maybe that's why they are rare.
