I'm wondering whether I understood what Tines&Reeds said.
I'm also wondering if I could glue a piece of wood or plastic to the front face of the pedestal, sticking up enough to create the bump.

Right. When you compare them to the grommets, I understand immediately.

Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure I can move the action rail. It's aluminum, bolted in at several points, at a fixed distance from the front.

Hi, All--

My 1977 Rhodes was in storage for decades, according to the first owner. Only 5 of the hammer tips show wear. He said he never had it worked on, so they may be original.
Will the tips have hardened or otherwise changed over time? Should I replace all of them?

Hi, All--
1977 Rhodes, here.
In marking where to place the bump for the miracle mod, it looks as though there is not much room. Following the instructions, I press the key and place the bump just in front of the hammer cam. The bump actually hangs over the edge of the pedestal. This is the case for both treble and bass.

So, should I still make the modification?

That explains a lot. So whether I need an amp or not depends on the situation of the instrument, not the qualities of the preamp.

Thanks for your answer.

Hi All,

This is a hopelessly basic question: What level do the VV and RetroFlyer produce? Do I run it into an amp, or do I treat it like a synth and run it into a mixer?

I'm confused by what I've been reading. They are powered, so I would assume it goes in a mixer (ultimately into a powered speaker), but I've seen things like running it into a mixer but into the microphone jack.
