Quick question for anyone with a Vintage Vibe Stereo Vibe:

I keep hearing about this onboard switch for Field Effect Transistor mode on my Stereo Vibe but I can't find a switch.
Any info for this?

Thanks!

62
Thank you Steveo! I didn't know about setting it to factory specs. I will take a look at the manual. That really helps!

63
If I wanted more of a quieter, clean, out of the box sound, what would be a good way to voice my Rhodes? (Tine height, escapement, etc.)

Thank you

64
Alright! Have fun with it!!!

65
You're welcome. Based on the logo and the pre-amp, it's an early '70s suitcase top?

66
I'm an idiot. It would be the harp support. Well I will look around. Thank you for your time Mr. Aubke

67
These screws screw into the metal piece on the bottom of the key frame. I don't think that would be the harp support

68
Alright. I just remember when screwing the screw in, the nut washer piece(?) started spinning around freely. I'll get back to you on that.

Thank you!

69
Ah gotcha. I also posted the image in a confusing way. Thank you. I will look around for the 1/4-20 machine thread screw.

So getting a new 'case screw' wouldn't do the job?

71
Thank you David!!

72
I could get one from Vintage Vibe, but my screw might be from Vintage Vibe, so I'm not quite sure. (I have no way of verifying that).

73
Thank you David!

I think these were the screws I was mentioning:
And #2 on the diagram. That screw.

Welcome to the forum Patrick! That sounds like a score!

Hello all,
Sorry for posting many topics, I am new to Rhodes ownership.

Some backstory:

The 'culprit' of my keys sticking was the right key bed screw, not the tolex.

I unscrewed both screws, moved the keybed away from the tolex, and playability was normal. I screwed the left keybed screw back in, and the keybed wasn't going to move anywhere. I screwed the right one in, and low and behold: the right side wiggled.

I narrowed it down to the screws. The left side screw seemed original; as it was slightly rusty. The right side screw was newer, and smaller.

Does anyone know where I could find a keybed screw that it the exact same size as the left one?

Thank you!

DynaMat would be a good solution, but I'd think I'd want to buy another harp cover just in case. I'll investigate more into this!

This is probably a dumb question but is there a way to make the key noise quieter? Sometimes it throws me off... ;D

Amps, Effects & Recording Techniques / Good Analog Vibrato?

Hello all,

I was wondering: what would be a subtle analog vibrato pedal? I'm looking for that very long pitch shifting vibrato.

Thank you!

Welcome! Yes I will never use gorilla glue. James suggested taking anything I don't feel confident in fixing to Matt Cunitz in SF. I just don't want to do the irreversible.

Thank you AvionKeys and Sean,

This seems to be a bit much to tackle as of right now, but I can definitely do this stuff in the long term.

Thank you! You were extremely lucky to meet him!
I will check him out.

Alright. I will find some contact cement and some replacement screws as well. Hopefully the new screws will screw in well and key the key bed away from the front

I am also wondering if the bent screws could be a culprit too? They might push the key bed forward???

Thank you guys!

Any specific type of glue or just general Gorilla Glue?

I found the perfect video on Vintage Vibe's YT channel.
 Never mind. Thank you!

Hello all,

I was wondering what would be the best way to fix an undampening note?

Thank you!
