Dimensions + weight GA-series

Hi guys from a quite new member.

I was wondering whether one of you can help me out with some specifications of the GA-series organs (especially for the GA2 and GA3).

Currently playing a GN9 but considering to switch on one of those models mentioned…

[b]Hello-
Have you looked up the manuals here? Mike is pretty good about posting most and will post any that is needed.
Secondly, if you have a solid blue screen...you're not going to want to hear this, the organ is probably done for. Unfortuanely, unle…

I suppose those rubbers are actually on the green and tan circuit boards...right? sad

Make sure you're looking at the Service Manual, not the regular user manual.

Re: GA3 Problem

Almost certainly. The rubber pads have two rubber contacts. I believe it is some type of graphite on the end of the two rubber 'prongs'.

One is longer than the other. When you press a key, the long one makes contact with the circuit board, rapidly foll…

Hi Dennis,

Probably loading a floppy disk is turning your touch sensitivity on, or increasing it, due to the settings on the disk. Just a guess.

Re: Top of the line Model

It was the G100C in Europe, built in 1996. Model numbers sometimes varied in different markets. I think the same model was F100 elsewhere, though the F100 possibly had more bass pedals.

EA5 was the next to last model made in 1995. However, the GA3 from…
