I'm not that keen on Ballst Bond.

Take a look at my reply #51 to see what I've found.

dave this ?


If you use a latex based mixture (e.g. 50/50 Copydex/water) to glue the ballast, the sound is reduced compared to a PVA mix and very definitely if you use the DeLuxe Ballast Bond which seems to amplify the noise.
