Re: Replacement music rest

Hi Katrina,

I don't unfortunately, that's one of the main issues. I don't want to order several if they are expensive in case people don't want them. I think I'll email all the owners of particular keyboards when I have news of each stand cost and gaug…

Re: Replacement music rest

PS
I'm actually in the UK.
The previous posts came up with USA flag. I've edited my address as UK at the bottom of the Profile.
(Has always said UK at top of the Profile Page anyway).

But still displays the wrong flag!

Re: Replacement music rest

PS the replacement won't match the original it will have a solid surface because I don't like the way that sheets of music fall through the original. But it will fit in the same way as the original.

Hi Brian and All,

Just like several of my projects it has proven to be quite complicated to source music rests for Technics keyboards. I have made drawings of quite a few of the rests and taken the actual rests to manufacturers to try to take this forw…

Re: PX-201 only outputs very quiet aux output - even after amp board replaced.

Thanks,

I messed up a soldering job (inexperienced) and one of the circuit boards popped, so it's of no concern anymore! New piano it is.

Hi Mike,

It does, the volume scales with the slider. I've also bypassed the slider electrically and that doesn't help either.

Re: PX-201 only outputs very quiet aux output - even after amp board replaced.

Hi,

A few ideas to try.

Does the volume slider make any difference to the output?

Try disconnecting the pedal cable (maybe a bad connection from the soft pedal would make it quiet).

Try playing somethin…
