Motor Mount in Top-loading Ampico Reduces Noise
By John A. Tuttle

After looking at quite a number of pictures of both grand and upright
motors and mounts designed by Ampico, I recalled the one I have in
my Chickering, with top-loading Ampico, which is quite different.
Below are links to pictures of the motor and mount.

It makes me think that Ampico wasn't satisfied with the quietness
of any of their previous motor mounts so they designed another one.
I can't explain why it works so well at dampening the vibration noise
of the motor, but it sure works great!

Musically,
