Which 4-pin cable do I need for this Suitcase Cabinet?
« on: September 25, 2017, 10:45:35 PM »
Hey guys,
SO my first Rhodes is a suitcase top with no suitcase cabinet. It did, however, come with the 4-pin round-to-Square cable. I've been playing it straight from the harp into my late 60's Fender Vibrolux and it's been pretty sweet. I've come across this guy on the Houston CL:

Can someone tell me by looking at that pic of the controls which 4-pin is going to be required? It looks like a 4-pin round but also it looks like a male connector when it should be female?

Hi .-)

Seems that the connetor on the cabinet has been replaced. This is not original. The connector is a japanese microphone connector which is normally used for Mic connection on amateur radio etc...

Wow that makes a lot more sense! I thought maybe there was some secret 4-pin male-to-female cable that no one was telling me about.

Looks like I'll be investing in a preamp power supply from vintage vibe and keep going through the Vibro. The cheek block one looks pretty nifty!
