Besides de-coupling from the floor be sure to have air space away from the walls and lay something deadening across the top. Id also keep the piano in an area of the home away from over her bedroom. If you have a decent relationship with her ask if you could hear from her apartment while someone else plays to get an idea of how much sound is actually coming through.
You might also use a stand instead of the legs and put weather striping between the piano and the stand.

Buying / Re: Handles for Oberheim 4 Voice
« on: September 23, 2020, 09:56:33 AM »
As I recall, Oberheim used handles a bit shorter than Fender and the caps were a bit more square. At the time Peavey used a similar one. Of course this was 40 years ago and just like every one else suppliers go out of business and may be impossible to source. You may want to check Reliable Hardware who has some different than standard models.

Anybody have a suggestion? He'd like to bring it in to get it checked out, but I'd rather the exterior was cleaned before bringing it in to the shop.

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Mildew Removal From Tolex?
« on: August 28, 2020, 10:30:46 AM »

A customer has called saying that while in storage his Rhodes has developed mildew on the case. He says the interior seems fine. He's asking for the best way to remove it without harming the tolex.
Hs anyone had a similar problem and what worked for you?

Sounds like your harp is out of place. Read the manual re: strike line adjustment.

First run something else through the cable and amp you're using to be sure they work. Then take a signal from the RCA jack  on the rear left of the harp to isolate if the problem is the harp or the control panel. That'll at least put you on the path so we can offer help.

As a possible solution to your issue, may I suggest you try running an EQ in your effects loop and adjust it to pull back the frequencies you're objecting to rather than modifying the piano from it's current state? As Retrolinear says any physical mods you do will affect the action and you may find your self more unhappy than you are now.

You're correct, it's two different eras. The two won't connect and operate at different voltages.

I used to put a strip of velcro on the end block and bottom of the effect unit.

Aas far as tweeters in guitar amps, the current Line 6 combo models use a tweeter, and most amps for acoustic guitars also have a tweeter.
