Yes! That's the way I bought it. The dampener looks like one of the Sampras "O ring" style dampeners that the stringer put the two center mains through. I have no idea if other Vollmer racket stringers installed the dampener the same way; this is the only Vollmer I own and they don't come up for sale very often.
