I have found that the material between the top of the foot and the backbar and the "tightness" of the key's mechanics also plays a role in key noise---especially in the lower stack. For this application I like to use thin synthetic felt that has been "hammered" to remove any remaining compressibility. For the feet of stack keys I prefer regular cork cut in a regular shape and a thin self adhesive felt "dot" on the body on the lower stack. On rare occasions on tenors when key bounce is a problem I will just use sorbothane or a piece of material cut from a "mouse pad". Upper stack keys rarely need the felt on the body. Regular cork on key feet allows key heights to be easily adjusted by sanding in addition to removing "lost motion". On "independent keys" such as the high E, fork F#, side Bb and C I like to use thick firm synthetic felt since it has the right "feel" and is very quiet. For palm keys where noise is seldom an issue I always use tech cork because I like the positive feel when the key opens. Occasionally on independent keys when a thick material is needed I will glue a thin piece of synthetic felt to a thicker piece of "tech cork".
I don't agree with cutting or sanding feet corks to a "V" shape. In my opinion it just makes them easier to knock off, and increases the tendency for the cork to compress changing the key height or introducing lost motion. When I sand a foot cork to adjust key height or remove lost motion, I cut a narrow strip of 400 grit wet or dry sandpaper and pull that under the cork (abrasive side up) with light to moderate pressure on the key. This removes material in a controlled way and it sands the shape of the cork to conform exactly to the curve of the body. It is a quick, effective, and no nonsense way of installing and adjusting foot corks. Most of the time I start with 1/16" cork, but occasionally I will use 3/32" when a thicker cork is required.
