Don't forget that you can adjust the strike line (front to back adjustment of the reeds) by slightly moving the entire reed bar. You can also heat the glue join of the hammer that is too quiet and adjust the hammer itself in or out if it is only one key. (See the service manual) you likely want the hammer to hit further in for the sweet spot.

That's good advice, and I'll keep it in mind. The amp goes in tomorrow for 3 prong upgrade and electrolytic caps replacement (and whatever the tech deems necessary.) I'm not entirely sure I'll keep this instrument, but I want to get it in pretty good shape for the next curator. The amp repair might turn the sound of this thing into something I can't part with--who knows?

cheers
