Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Rhodes upper octave "scream"
« on: March 19, 2019, 11:54:05 AM »
I've looked around for a while and cannot find anything on this issue I'm having with a few notes in the upper octave of my Rhodes!
Pehaps I am not naming the issue right, but the best way I can describe it is that I have a few notes in the top octave that have a sort of "scream" or "gargle" - basically it's a really fast beating. The sound is vastly more prominent when a note is struck acoustically without the piano plugged into an amplifier, but it does still create some unpleasant overtones when amplified, and it makes tuning these few notes much harder.

My tech said some tonebar clips might help tame the "scream", but it did not. I've tuned to ET as well as a percision strobe tune Rhodes stretch map, which also had no effect.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
