Tech Questions Regarding Fender Rhodes Pianos

mechanical noise on note release.

Postby on Tue Nov 08, 2011 12:41 am

I have a 1980 mkII (wooden key) stage 73 that makes a noise on note release that is picked up by the pickups
and amplified almost as much as the note itself. I thought it was damper noise but I replaced my dampers & damper felts and I actually think it made it worse. Would replacing key pedestal felts help ?
Is it possible that the pickups are microphonic ? Any suggestions anyone has will be appreciated as this driving my crazy . Staccato passages in the low to middle register are most annoying on this otherwise great sounding piano. HELP ! dluxmaroon
