Title: Pianet T Reeds - where to source?
Post by: coloradobenedic on June 18, 2021, 07:40:27 PM
Hey friends... anybody out there in possession of, or know where to find reeds for a Pianet T?  Clavinet.com etc. has some new pads and resto tools still, but reeds seem pretty scarce.  I've got a Pianet T here that I've been putting off doing some work on, but finally finding some time, and wanted to ask around. 

It's in pretty solid shape, and minor cleaning/tuning isn't so hard... but I'm thinking it might be good to have some extra reeds around for the few pesky notes that seem quieter or won't stay pitched correctly.  Any help is much appreciated!  I'll try to check back on this thread every so often, or feel free to email me at benwaligoske@gmail.com

Thanks!

Those reeds are pretty hardy. Do you have any that are actually broken? If they're just quiet or having trouble holding pitch, there are things you can do before resorting to replacing them.

Nothing actually broken... but a couple keys that are real "plinky" or choked sounding when struck, even after new rubber hammer tips, adjusting the pickups/action etc.  I can continue to work with what I have for now as the reeds seem sort of difficult to find, but if there was a place to reliable get replacements, it would be nice to know about.

Thanks for your reply!

I think Marcel from EP service in Netherlands has some stock.

Is there any rust or corrosion on the reeds? I found that clavinet.com's "eurotool" (just a fiberglass brush, can probably be sourced elsewhere) was really good at cleaning up the surface rust/corrosion and improved the tone of the reeds.
