The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / damper felts
« on: July 09, 2008, 02:25:02 PM »
hi, the kit didn't come with any instructions, it came with a scalpal, glue, and 3 different pakets of felts. labeled;

1. bass 35,
2. Mid 35
3. Treb 18

i think i have been sent a kit for 88 instead of 73. i was thinking of just putting all the bass and mid ones on, and put the treble ones on the rest, but i'm not sure. thanks for you advice.

thanks for the reply. the manual didn't really tell me anything though regarding felt types. i assume that as my rhodes keys are numbers 8-80 should use 27 bass felts, 35 mid range felts, and 11 treble felts. does this sound correct?

hi all, i'm about to replace the damper felts on my rhodes with new felts from vintage vibe. I have been sent 88 felts maybe by mistake, but i dont know how i should go about installing them. i have also re-tipped the hammers, and i can see where they change hammer type. do you think it would be a good idea to mach the felts with the hammers - i.e. changes felt type when the tip type changes??

thankyou all in advance!!

the mirical mod is fantastic!!!!!!! its hard to explain how it changed the action, it basically makes the action a lot smoother and lighter. i'm yet to put the harp back, but i think i'm gonna have to play a lot softer than i used to, which is good. i highly recomend it.

thankyou mate. 2 minute reply, amazing!!!!!!!!

hi all, i started restoring my rhodes today with my parts arriving from vintage vibe!! i am going to install the bump mod, and the hammer felts. i have been told that you should only have felt on the keys or the hammers - never both. which would be the best to put felt on considering i'm installing the bump mod.

Thanks a lot Bjammerz. Also, i'm about to fully restore my rhodes - (New hammertips, bushings, Sustain felts, miracle mod, voice, tune, Red tolex? etc.) - and i'm a bit of a novice. so any advice would be very much appriciated.

hi all - i'm about to restore my '73 suitcase top, and in doing this i have totally dismateled it. when i took the keys out i noticed that all of the hammers are at different hights. when the keys are in they're pretty even. does this really matter?

i'd be carefull putting a rhodes through an ac30, the speakers will pop easily as they arent designed to go as low as a rhodes range.

i use a kc 350. good clean sound, but not the best. its great for my nord stage though, but after borrowing a silverface twin i havent been satisfied with my rhodes ever since. twins are the best ive used!!

okay then. i have the suitcase top without the cab, but with the pre amp. from what you say i gather i can buy a power supply which will solve my problem. thanks

hi, i have a rhodes suitcase top. currently i am taking the sound directly from the harp. the preamp has never been in the piano since i had it. is it possible to use this without the suitcase bottom, like buying a power supply for it?

The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / no sound out of a Wurly 200A's Aux Out
« on: December 03, 2007, 05:34:40 PM »
it'll probably be the fuses. theirs a fuse for the line out, and a fuse for the headphone out. i bought a fuse mod from vintage vibe last year, but it turned out i didn't need it. its a new fuse fitting because you can't get the right size fuses anymore. check the fuses. i can sell you the fuse mod for what i paid for it. it cost me £6, so you can have it for that plus p+p, aprrox £8 all together

ps. its really easy to fit

The Wurlitzer Electric Piano / nord wurly sound
« on: June 14, 2007, 06:09:11 AM »
i have a stage compact, and at most gigs i use the wurly sound. i think the wurly sound is one of the best sounds on the keyboard. The organ sounds are also probably the best ive heard (better than my VK8), the only problem i've found with the wurly sound is that it sounds harsh too quick, but that is more due to the light action. i recently played my mates electro rack being powerd by a fatar weighted controloler, and i must say it does sound better than my real wurly. saying that my wurly is knacared!!!

Preamps, Modifications & Upgrades / bumps?
« on: May 31, 2007, 03:27:14 PM »
hi, i'm new to this site, and i have been reading a lot about pedalstall bumps? what exatly are they? i get the idea that they go on the part of the keys which contact with the hammer?

I have a nord stage compact, and although the action is very light compared to my Rhodes it is worth getting used to. it is a comprimise, and i think digital keyboards will always be. i can get on the bus with my nord and the kc60, but with the Rhodes? forget about it!!!!!!!!!!!
