I'm in Columbus, Ohio - local certainly preferred but let me know if you are interested and we can discuss shipping


For Sale / Rhodes 54 - Ohio
« on: February 19, 2015, 03:19:38 PM »
Selling a Rhodes 54.  I've replaced the tine bar screws and grommets, and a few hammer tips where needed.  All keys and electronics work properly, and it's been recently tuned.  The only issue at all is on the lid - I put some braces around a corner that had a crack when I bought it (see pics).  It's rock solid and I gigged with it for several years with no issues.

I'm in Columbus, Ohio.  Would prefer a local deal, but open to shipping if the buyer covers the cost.

$900 local.

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Mark V Lid Alignment Issues?
« on: October 31, 2013, 10:33:42 AM »
Has anyone ever had any issues with a Mark V lid (the outer case/cover, not the harp cover) not fitting?  Mine fits fine on any three corners, but won't connect in the fourth corner, almost like the lid is too small.  The steel rim around the outside is very strong and not something I could easily bend, and I was hesitant to go pounding on it with a hammer.

Just thought I'd check here if anyone else has had this issue and if they had any good tips for fixing it.  Thanks!

For Sale / SOLD - Rhodes 54 in Columbus Ohio

Rhodes is SOLD


I'm selling a 54-key Rhodes piano. Much lighter than a 73 or 88 key Rhodes.

The 54's were only made for a relatively brief period, and by that point they had incorporated some changes in the action that make it much better than the older Rhodes. This one plays more like a wurlitzer or piano.

I've replaced all the dampers, hammers, grommets, and screws, and it's been tuned recently.

Case is in good shape for the age - see pics below.

Price is $900 local to Columbus Ohio. I'm open to meeting if you're not too far, and maybe even shipping if you pay the cost. Thanks for looking!

I was curious to hear about any experiences and in particular comparisons regarding the three clav pickups that are on the market

-Vintage Vibe (single coil, set) (humbucker, set)
-Ken Rich (appears to be single coil, and only the upper)

Are there any other options?

I'm doing a restoration for a gigging clav and both the pickups are cracked.  I managed to glue them back together so that they work again, but I don't really trust that for gigging.

I'm leaning towards the ones since they are humbucking, but was curious how different that might make them sound.  I'm familiar with the difference in single coil/humbuckers in guitars, so I can guess, but thought I'd see here if anyone has any firsthand experience comparing them.


Other Keyboards & Software Synths / Question re Clav (D6) HUM & Wiring
« on: October 15, 2013, 11:50:52 AM »
I'm restoring a D6 with the intention of making it as hum-proof as possible for gigging.  I know about the options for the preamp (shield box or replacement) and the humbucking pickups.  I was curious who has tried either of those and what their experience was.

Also, the power and audio lines in the D6 are literally tied together and run across nearly the entire board,  Normally, at least in other applications, you don't want audio and power lines running parallel as the power line will introduce noise & hum.  I was curious if anyone had re-wired a clav to address this and if they noticed any improvement from doing so.  I'm not sure I want to put another hole in mine, but in theory, you could put the jack all the way over on the left by the preamp and avoid running the power across the board entirely.  I was instead thinking of just un-bundling the power & audio lines and separating/insulating each of them from the other.  But I thought I'd check here before doing so.

Any thoughts are welcome!  Thanks!
