I found this i want know what you think if this leslie can match my piano and suggestions and comments.
I found various fender vibratone or Leslie 16 cabinet, this strangely seems to be a tube amp...can i connect it directly to the piano?

Hi, im using a rhodes stage through a preamp into a hi-fi home stereo and im evaluating an offer for a DOD phasor 490 vintage phase shifter to have more flavour and movement to the sound.
Price is 100 euro.
What do you think?
does somebody know any recording or video live of jazz music mostly standards with fender rhodes piano?
im not a piano player, this question is coming from a frend that play very well my rhodes at my home, jazz standards.
The question-idea is to bend down the damper felt on the low octave only allowing the piano pedal to work at two stages
- if pressed the sustain pedal full all the tines will be free, as in any pianos
- if pressed at half only the first octave (the bass notes) will be free.

It is good?
It is easy to do?
Have some disadvantages or risk?

This to emulate a similarity to the "sostenuto" pedal funcion of the grand piano, altaugh not the same the result woild be some roots of the chords should be sustained...

I see that this situation appear anyway but in non organized way because the pedal is not just "on-off" but has some degree of mechanical range action, if the pedal is pressed at first stage there is some note that is in contact with the felt and some not, the idea is to take advantage of this.

Disclaimer: i'm a double bass player i'm not a piano expert so please be patient with me, maybe i wrote a stupid thing or a obvious thing.

Thanks for your patience...
Hi everyone,
i'm evaluating the various legs for Rhodes Stage
i have difficulties to understand the differences between the "Vintage Vibe" and the "Vintage Gear" legs...
i have since few weeks a Rhodes MK1 '77 and i'm doing some maintenance in simply way, just experimenting and having fun.
I'm doing some improvemet on key bushing on some bad key and now i see that the backrail felt is hard, maybe due to time.
What you think if i glue another thin felt over the old felt without removing it?
This because i shloud so without removing the action rail just removing the name rail and the keys...
Its really a blasphemy or somebody have tried to glue a felt over nother?
The new felt that i have is thin,  1mm thick so i suppose that doing this i will adjust also the key dip that now is 10-11mm.
Thanks ciao from Italy
