Anybody got a source for this little male snap for the lid compartment strap. Just looking for the male snap, I got plenty of straps.

Anyone try this pedal with a Rhodes?

I have a Korg Poly Ensemble S in need of a home. Needs some work. Contact me off list if interested.
Just got this link from a friend. What's the strangest thing you've found inside a vintage keyboard?

I had heard a couple of players talking about car gaskets being used for hammer tips on Clavinets back in the day, but until now, I had never seen it. Now I have....
Looking for one in good shape. Anyone have one to sell?
The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / 1973 Suitcase 88
August 15, 2016, 04:43:39 PM
Working on a 1973 Suitcase 88 and noticed that there never was a rear logo on this one. Only the logo on the amp / speaker cab (and the small one on the name rail). Anyone else ever see this?

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Key Peds

Here's an odd one. I'm working on a Mark I Stage 88 (4876) for a client and noticed that 2 of the mid section key peds were off of the keys. Pulled those out to look at and barely touched one of their neighboring key peds. It came right off. After getting all of the keys out I find that all of the key peds (bare wood - felt on hammer cam) are snapping off at the slightest touch. Thought it might be from extreme heat so I checked all of the black key caps and they are quite secure. Bad batch of glue? Either way I'm snapping them off and glueing them back on. Running out of clamps though. Happy Tuesday!
I've got a client with a 1972 Fender Rhodes with a VV Stereo Vibe preamp. Right now they are running into a small mixer (with some other keys) and into the main PA in their spacious rehearsal room. They wanted my advice on what would "sound" best for this FR. I, not being a sound engineer, said I'd see if I could get some different ideas  for him. What would you do with this FR in this situation?

For Sale / Rhodes in Florida

Got a call from a fellow in the Northern Virginia / Southern Maryland area with a 1979 Suitcase 73 for sale. Here's the rub. It's been stored in a shed for some time and there is some rust. Contact me via e-mail if interested. Don't think he wants too much for it. Sounds a like a great candidate for restoration.

While not known as an electric piano artist, James Booker was an amazing New Orleans piano player who continues to influence many. Going to see the new documentary tonight in Dayton, Ohio. Check it out if it comes to your town.

Here's a link to the doc:

I'm spring cleaning in the shop and have found a couple of sets of complete dampers.
One is a new (never opened) Speakeasy Vintage stainless steel complete set (without felt) for a 73.
The other is a complete set from an 88. Felt will need replaced on these.

They're collecting dust. Make me an offer.

More to come.
