I've got a Mark I with a broken hammer comb that's caused the E, F and F# keys below middle C to collapse. I've looked online and found a few hammer combs for sale. Before I order one and delve into this project, is there anything I should know with regards to compatibility, special tools I might need, etc.?

I haven't been able to find any youtube videos that specifically address hammer combs. Can anyone point me to one?

Many Thanks!


Hammer combs didn't change over time. At least to my knowledge...

Go and get it :-)

You won't need any special tools. However you will have to replace the hammer tips.You can remove those from your broken comb and reglue them or buy new tips entirely which will be easier but more costly.
