Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / key pedestal mod
« on: September 04, 2004, 02:41:47 AM »
can anyone share some knowledge about how the later key pedestals with the little raised bit effect the action of the hammer?
i'm just interested to know what happens to the hammer when you push they key down..
and does this decrease your escapement and lesson the amount of tone variation you can get using your brilliant touch?

would anyone be kind enough to give me advice on building an adaptor so that my four pin mk 1 suitcase can use its vibrato without the speaker?
or am i better off trying to find an original speaker?
the scematic says i need 25 volts, whereas people keep talking about 24 volts.
i know i need an adaptor and four diodes and a capacitor. that's all i know.
i promise it wont be your fault if your advice electricutes me.

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / rhodes on tv

hey does anyone know of film clips or movies or tv shows with a rhodes in em? i just thought it would be fun to know when i might see one.
i know the outkast "hey ya" film clip has two silver tops in it.
and that movie about tina turner and ike has a scene with a rhodes in it.
and one time i saw a silver top in an episode of sabrina the teenage witch.
and on that mtv show cribs, someone had a real nice silver top in their bedroom. i think they thought it was made in 1973 cause it said seventy three on it. (you know 73 keys).
i just realized how lame this is.

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / vibrato-4pin din

hello. i'm jim.
i just got me a Mk1 88 with legs. i'm quite certain it's a suitcase though, cuz it says suitcase under the cover. And i've been looking all over this great site for a suitcase rhodes with the same vibrato knobs as mine, but the only picture i've seen with exactly the same controls as my rhodes is that satellite thing.
and all i Really want to do is use the vibrato, and if i can't use it in the original manner, how can gain access to all it's fender rhodes beauty? does it just need power?
