just got this for £450 ($714) needs a lube, and the bit that holds the sustain dowel needs glueing, apart from that plays well!

ive had a nord stage for 5 years, and i love it. i tried a SV-1, which was really good, but i still think the nord is better. the new nord stage 2 is one of the most amazing boards ive ever tried. that on top of a rhodes would be my dream rig. (maybe a prophet as well.

my mate sold one last year for £650!

does anyone know who can repair and restore wurlitzer electric pianos in north west uk?? i have an ep 200a, which needs the action setting up and lubed, keys need leveling, and it could probably do with a tuning..

Amps, Effects & Recording Techniques / new tubes
« on: April 29, 2011, 01:47:59 PM »
im about to totally revalve my traynor ygl3a with JJ's. i have read on the net about biasing, and i cant figure out if thats if your changing valve types eg; el34's to 6L6's or if your changing the make eg eh to jjs. it currently has 4, 12ax7's, 4 el34's and an el84. can i just change the valves? or is there more to it then that?? the text on the current valves has faded, so i cant see what make they are, but i think they might be mullards.

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Re: Are Mark V's Still Desirable?
« on: April 13, 2011, 07:09:30 AM »
my friend has played the modern keyboard in question, and it does have a better action he says, also all the demoes are out of a class d amp, maybe they sound better thru a twin. sorry if ive broke the rules. but the vv piano sounds amazing i think, more of an early 70's sound.

i think the new ones havent been demo'd properly. i need to hear one through a twin before i make my mind up. a friend of mine who is md for corrine bailey rae tried one and he says its the best thing he as ever played, and he has a mint '79 mark one. i think the two need to be compared side by side. also the new ones just might not have the best set up you like on the demo's
