    It cannot be "inside" any of the cross strings. I don't believe there is any rule that dictates how many you can have, however.

    How much does your racket or stringbed vibrate to need more than 1? I think 1 is 1 too many.

    Please, folks, it's Damp-en-er. Not, damp-er. I don't mean to be a pain here. I'm just a little sensitive about my name.

    I agree. I personally dislike dampeners. In my opinion, they kill the feel.

    You won't be dissapointed going to a rubberband. You maintain string feel, takes just enough of the ping of the strings, and doesn't add any mass to the racquet. For about a penny a piece it's worth a try. ;)
