Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Do hammer tips go bad?
« on: August 21, 2021, 09:13:09 PM »
Hi, All--

My 1977 Rhodes was in storage for decades, according to the first owner. Only 5 of the hammer tips show wear. He said he never had it worked on, so they may be original.
 
Will the tips have hardened or otherwise changed over time? Should I replace all of them?

Thanks.

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / No room for bump mod?

Hi, All--
1977 Rhodes, here.
In marking where to place the bump for the miracle mod, it looks as though there is not much room. Following the instructions, I press the key and place the bump just in front of the hammer cam. The bump actually hangs over the edge of the pedestal. This is the case for both treble and bass.

So, should I still make the modification?

Preamps, Modifications & Upgrades / N00b preamp question
« on: August 09, 2021, 05:16:22 PM »
Hi All,

This is a hopelessly basic question: What level do the VV and RetroFlyer produce? Do I run it into an amp, or do I treat it like a synth and run it into a mixer?

I'm confused by what I've been reading. They are powered, so I would assume it goes in a mixer (ultimately into a powered speaker), but I've seen things like running it into a mixer but into the microphone jack.

Thanks,
Sean
