I have a little red kit with 100 different hex screwdriver bits that I got at a hardware store for like, $10. It even comes with security bits so I can completely dismantle a mens room if I feel like it. I recommend finding one of those you'll have every bit under the sun and no mystery screw will b...

outputs will float up without a load.

if you don't trust it, you can put a 10k resistor to ground and then test voltages.

nice. Thanks for the tip!

I have the power cables in a metal pipe against the back of the rail.

I have dusted it out, but its been a few years since the last big vacuum. I usually hit the reeds with a soft paintbrush too, holding the vacuum right up against it as I dust.

But also power transformers don't usually just blow like a light bulb when they've been on too long. Usually there has to be a short or other problem to get them to go out. It could be that the amp developed a problem and made the original transformer die, but the new transformer is just tougher. t...

could be as simple as a programming issue - maybe you do not have the oscillators set to track from the keyboard? Disabling this is a common feature of old analogs - its helpful to turn tracking off if you are creating drums or noise from the synth.

the nice thing about deoxit is that you can keep it on a shelf for years. I have only bought a bottle once - and it was almost ten years ago, and it still works just the same. I imagine I will have it forever. This means you dont have enough knobs! :lol: Now go out and buy the oldest piece of equip...

what did you test it with?

many of the leslie speakers are pinned out differently - and there are many preamp pedals for many purposes to interface different organ pinouts and signal types.

we need more info!
