Thanks for doing this. A handy thing to have around!

Bought some parts a while back and the seller threw in an old scanned paper copy of the parts list.

I've scanned it, cropped what I can and rotated it if anyone is interested.

It contains a list of parts for 200 series pianos, schematic and board layouts for 200a (including wiring) and a guide showing the tuning of reeds over the keyboard by cents which I haven't seen in the existing guides.

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Re: Best Cheap/Clone Chorus for Rhodes???
« Last post by sean on October 30, 2019, 03:44:21 PM »

I have a Small Stone, and I have a CE-5.  I like the CE-5 better.  However, it turns out that I like a phase shifter much better than chorus. Wait.  What?

I have a Small Stone Phase Shifter, and a Boss PH-3 Phase Shifter.  I like the Boss PH-3 Phase Shifter better than the Small Stone.  I also have a Boss CE-5 chorus pedal, it is creamy greatness, but I like the phase shifter better on Rhodes.

Go to the local music store and try out a few pedals.  Drag them into the keyboard room, and test them on a few Rhodes patches.  See which one you like enough to pay for.  Don't buy one sight unseen and sound unheard.

The Daphon Choruses are amazing for the money. Sounds much like a CE-2

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Best Cheap/Clone Chorus for Rhodes???

Can't afford the CE-1 and am wondering about the BehringerUC200 and some other clones for Rhodes. Everything on the web is for guitar. What do you guys like for a cheap/good value chorus???

I'm not sure if this is still an issue or if you got it resolved, but one thing that can help with troubleshooting is seeing if you've got the oscillator working correctly. You should be able to test this by measuring the the two non-ground posts of the vibrato potentiometer with an ohmmeter. If you have an analog ohmmeter, you'll see the needle bounce. (You can still tell with a digital ohmmeter, since the reading won't be steady.)

Also, make sure that the wires coming back to the pre-amp are correct. The NON-ground wire actually connects right next to where it says "GND" on the pre-amp (referring to the screw connection to the harp), so it's not the hardest thing to mix up. (And if you did, I think you'd get sound, but no vibrato. Also, I'm legally obligated to mention that it's actually tremolo, not vibrato, but whatever... He he.)

Good luck buddy!

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Re: MKII Suitcase 88 weird noise - please help!

Good call Vance!

Plug a guitar cable from one jack to the other, and the problem might go away.  If it does, then you must either clean the jacks (works for a few months), or replace the jacks.

The problem is shown here:

Parts, Service, Maintenance & Repairs / Re: Rhodes MK iii EK10 To MK ii Conversion

I never noticed the EK-10 link on http://www.fenderrhodes.com/service/manual.html
The pdf has lots of great detail http://www.fenderrhodes.com/pdf/mark3-service-manual.pdf

The only good method of converting this to a Mark II is the "sell-it or trade-it" method that Tim mentioned.

Unsoldering and re-soldering all those pickup connections is a guaranteed headache filled with melted nylon bobbins and popped-loose terminals.

Please don’t rip it apart.

I'm with Dan. There are plenty of MK2's around, not many EK-10's and whilst they might not be the most desirable of Rhodes they are rarer than some.

If you're not keen on getting it fixed perhaps someone will trade you or alternatively you can sell it and try and get a different model.
