Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Woven Damper Felts
« on: May 04, 2019, 05:24:16 PM »
Has anyone tried the woven damper felts from Avion studios?
Thank you in advance !

I have a broken slotted spring that’s used in the sustain pedal
Could anyone tell me what diameter it is ?
There’s not quite enough of it left to measure accurately
Many thanks in advance !


I just replaced the grommets and screws/washers on a 54 and now have no sound at the rca socket.
I have tried a jumper lead from the positive terminal to the lugs of all the pickups (they are the white wrapped ones) and do get some notes working in the treble area. I don’t get a ‘thwack’ sound from a screwdriver on the magnets as you’d expect though

I know there are issues with the white wrapped pickups but in this case they were fine before replacing the grommets so I can’t believe a large number would suddenly fail coincidentally

I also bypassed the rca/phono socket to no avail

I can only think it might be a grounding problem on the harp pick up rail foil strip?
I haven’t adjusted the pickups at all yet so that rail should be fine

Apologies if this should be in an existing thread - I have read them all before posting but I thought someone may have experience with this particular problem after replacing the grommets rather than having pre-existing dead pickups or grounding issues

I have replaced grommets on two Stage 73 Mk 1 models in the past and never had a problem!

Many thanks in advance for any help or advice!

Preamps, Modifications & Upgrades / Back check mod from Vintage Vibe

Anyone tried the Vintage Vibe back-check mod? Seems like a good idea...I've thought of doing it the hard way using piano action parts, but the Vintage Vibe kit has to be the way!
Worth doing? Any thoughts appreciated!

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Key Pedestal Felt Missing
« on: April 15, 2009, 03:19:04 PM »
I have a Rhodes Stage 73 Mk 1, not sure exactly what year (serial number 604050)
It has no felt on the key pedestals, just bare wood. Looks as though it came from the factory like this as the wood is pristine.

Is this ok? Normal?

Any help much appreciated
