Adjusting a keyboard's action


Calumet

Recommended Posts

So, guitar players can adjust their actions but can keyboard players? Are we confined to what the folks at Roland/Yamaha/Korg etc. define as a good action?

 

Has anyone ever adjusted the action of one of their synths?

No, but I've rebuilt the hell out of a Rhodes action to make it playable.

 

You could replace the springs of a synth action for different tension, I reckon.

Yeah...I've done that on a Rhodes too.

 

I was thinking the same thing you are - using a different tension spring to create more of a, say, Hammond B-3 action.

well I saw that carlito made his own action with rubber bands attached to an 88 weighted board.. But he had put "the keys" into a box made by himself. don't think you can srew open your Triton Extreme to change the action..
