The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / great free tuner for mac
« on: July 13, 2014, 03:34:11 PM »
i found a great tuner with a free 2 week trial! not sure how much it is to buy, but 2 weeks hass been enough for me to tune the rhodes!!!!!!

5
yes, there are maybe 4 or 5 that need shimming up a bit....

6
but if the action feels great, why spend all that time to change it??

7
im gonna come back to it in a few days...... on another topic, would it be ok to tune the rhodes to my nord by ear or do i need a tuner???

8
i got the meter today, and i tried using it but haven't got the patience! i took out all of the shims and just placed all they keys onto the felt and the action is fast and light, really even and dynamic. next thing is to re-drill the harp for optimum strike line!!!

nice one! ill order it!

hi steveo, it hasnt been serviced in a while, the action is awful, and it could do with voicing/tuning. ive just rebuilt my rhodes, and i really dont want to tackle the wurly!

11
is there a trick to mesure the height? ive tried with a ruler, but with the wood infront on the keys being slanted, its hard to keep the ruler straight.........

« on: June 10, 2014, 09:00:09 AM »
hi mike, i went for a samson active pa cab. its great for the nord, needs a mixer infront of it but has loads of power (200 watt) i highley recomend it.

payed £170 at pmt music, salford, manchester, and did a price match with http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samson-SAROD210A-Lightweight-Powered-Loudspeaker/dp/B00A1ALYPE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1402408610&sr=8-1&keywords=Auro+D210
as it was about £220 at pmt!

Amps, Effects & Recording Techniques / portable amp for the nord
« on: March 24, 2014, 12:02:05 PM »
hi all, im after a portable amp to use with the nord. i dont drive so it has to be portable for busses and trains. i've tried an AER acoustic amp which was perfect, but its way out of my budget (£100/$165). im looking at either;

or
http://www.thomann.de/gb/the_tamp_pa4080kb.htm

i normally use a 100w valve amp, but need something for smaller gigs. any advise would be appriciated!
