Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Mark V key dip
« on: June 08, 2015, 07:15:28 PM »
My MkV has a too deep key dip. Something like 12mm (1/2"). Even after I took of all paper shims from the balance pins and rebalanced the keys with less papers (I know thats not the way to adjust key dip, but there was a lot of paper shims). Now I'm playing around with a thin felt over the  stripe felt (mark V style). Kind of works... What do you guys think? I hope you can understand my english.
Thanks, Kim

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / bypassing bad pickups
« on: November 06, 2013, 03:04:10 PM »
I was helping a friend of mine to put his Mark II in working condition for a recording.
His rhodes got 7 bad pickups and we don't have good ones available for replace.
So we swap the dead ones with the last octave pickups.
But then the output got too weak.
So i bypassed the last dead pickups with a wire connecting the last good pickup (F#) coil winding end with the screw at the right of the last pickup (where the red and black wires are connected) And I got a good output again.
Can I cause any damage by doing this?
Sorry for my english....I hope you can understand...

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Help with damper adjustment
« on: February 08, 2012, 03:13:29 PM »
Hi guys,
first of all,  I want to say that I'm really thankfull for this forum and with your help I acomplished a lot with my first rhodes (MKV).
Now I really like my rhodes sound, but I can't achieve proper damper on the bass register.
The dampers bounce as the hammers bounce and make those after touch noises.
I read a lot about it in the forum and in the Manual. I did try the two ways to bend the dampers, replace the damper felts. And now I don't know what to do. Any sugestions?

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / tunning and cutting low tine
« on: January 27, 2012, 08:37:20 AM »
I installed the lowest F tine(73 keys) a little longer than the chart recomends. But even if I put the spring as far as I can it's still too sharp.
the tine and the spring are both new. Now I'm afraid to cut cut the tine in the recomended measure and gets even sharper.

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / replacing hammer tips
« on: January 26, 2012, 07:54:34 AM »
I just take it off my old hammer tips. Now I'm cleaning the hammer with a X-acto knife but I can get rid off all the glue and ruber of the old ones. Vintage vibe sad the needs to be completely clean. Should I install the new hammer tips even the hammers are still a little dirty?

I'm new in the forum. I'm Brazilian...so, sorry for my english.
I'm looking to replace some parts of my rhodes mkV.

Hammer tips: Vintage vibe or the new rhodes hammer tips?

Tines: VV or the new Rhodes tines?  Do those will sound like my other tines?

damper felts: mkv looks thinner then the others. Do Thicker felts will fit?
Actually I don't know if I need to replace those.. because I don't have damper problems, just noise in the bass when release a note (when damper hits the tine)

I'll be thankful for any help.
Kim
