Other Keyboards & Software Synths / CP70 Chain lengths
« on: October 07, 2019, 01:52:53 PM »
My CP70m doesn't have sustain pedal chains.
Could someone please measure theirs?
I love the piano, but the wandering sustain pedal drives me nuts!

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Name Rail Modifications
« on: March 21, 2018, 09:22:13 AM »
I wonder, if most prefer running a direct signal off the harp on a Stage Rhodes, why are we not drilling a direct output on the name rail and installing a shunted 1/4" output?  Maintaining stock aesthetics of the original name rail?

With the all of the talk of the Bass or Tone control knob excessively coloring the signal in negative ways, a non-invasive, easily revertible option might be removal of the knob and installing a shunted 1/4" there? (Obviously with washers due to hole size.)

edit: I hadn't seen sean's post here https://ep-forum.com/smf/index.php?topic=9793.msg54382#msg54382.  I really like the drop-in replacement faceplates!

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Strike line on a Mark II
« on: March 18, 2018, 01:36:52 PM »
I have a Mark II.  The action always felt nice and tight, but the sound was always dull with little dynamics.  I replaced the hammer tips to no avail.  Adjusting pickups helped a little.

This weekend, I adjusted the strike line. Wow!  It came alive with great dynamics, tone and bark.  I had to shim the treble end about 3/16".  Now that its adjusted, I need to mount the harp.  However, on the Mark II, these are aluminum rails with tapped holes that machine screws go into.  Also, the location of these new holes are close to the original holes on the bass end of the harp.

My questions are:
- Should I make new holes in the harp to get the mounting holes far enough away from the original holes in the aluminum.
- Does anyone have any hints on tapping the aluminum?

Other Keyboards & Software Synths / Mute Slider
« on: March 16, 2018, 12:59:39 PM »
I was wondering if anyone has any of these for sale.  Or, has anyone created a CAD/maker file for 3D printing?

Or, if you have a mute slider, would you give me the dimensions?  I'll create the CAD file from there.

Thanks!

The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / Wurli 145
« on: February 11, 2008, 01:41:24 PM »
Does anyone have pictures of a 145.  I picked one up, but the knobs are different, the vibrato was not hooked up, no power switch and the neon was gone.  This has 4 holes in the face panel and nothing on the left cheek block.

On the plus side,  all reeds intact, pedal and and legs.  The amp had a broken resistor from the pick-up bar.  Viola!  Instant Wurli!  Now I just have to clean this up and give 'er a good paint job.

The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / 200 series amp
« on: June 08, 2007, 08:40:59 AM »
My wurli has very little high end.  I've replaced some of the 5uf caps which has helped clean up the overall sound, but still no high end.  The resistors are (basically) within specs. (Some are out 15%, so I dont think its *that* far off)

My question is: Is the trimmer R48 on the board for tone control?

Thanks.

Andy
