...realized that the device used the same rotten solder that cratered a run of Chromas back when, which I solved with a few whacks from a body mallet. Voila, a new pop-art sculpture for the wall.

....forgot to unplug the keyboard and touched line voltage.

 

Line voltage aint that bad ... in the US where we use that 110 girlie power.

 

Some of the voltage inside Hammond, tube amps etc.... can really bite your ass. Especially faulty tube amps that may come into the shop because some issue is causing voltages to run too high. There was a Fender Princeton in the shop a few weeks ago that should have measure around 350 volts at one point in its circuit but the tech was reading 786!.

 

The anode on old TV set picture tubes could really kick your ass. Whether it was plugged in or not .... did not matter if it hadn't been bled.

I got a 400V kick once, some 25 years ago, from a defective bar fridge, just before a gig. Fortunately, the singer was with me... he saved my life by pushing me abruptly away. I will never forget the feeling.... I heard a very loud noise in my head, like a very large dog barking... Afterward, I started *running* around, then I couldn't speak for a couple of minutes. And I played that gig anyway.

And everybody said they've never heard you play so well.

 

Then the effect wore off, you went back to your usual sucky self and you've spent your whole life trying to recreate that without killing yourself...

 

Oh, wait. Did I do that??

fixed the key contact issue I've been having with my RD-700sx, dead notes that would come back after some repeated striking. I think the actual thread concerned a Kurzweil, but the rubber contact strips appeared identical. The only PITA was removing the entire action, but once the contact boards were exposed the fix was quick and easy. Whoever posted that thread, thanks!
