desperately seeking tech to sweeten a 200A
« on: January 18, 2019, 10:57:04 PM »
I have been trying to "sweeten" my 200A.  I recently had it touched up by a professional tech with some new reeds and a Warnecke amp and new sustain pedal.  There's still a note (F4) that stands out and the last octave is too soft.  My tech is very good with electronics but didn't do any regulation or hammer voicing.  I want it to sound as good as if it were in a Nashville or Muscle Shoals recording studio.

If I have to box her up and ship to a tech, please recommend two or three (preferably in the Mid West or Southeast) that could comprehensively treat my baby.  Does Morlocks have a tech in Mississippi that could meet these standards?

In the midwest, Max Brink, at Chicago Electric Piano Co., would be a good choice.

Thanks! Will give Max due consideration. 

Any closer suggestions?  I'm in NW Arkansas. Memphis? The Shoals?
