From Avion Studios - a complete restoration kit for your Rhodes action. We take pride in every design, every part and every piece.This is truly a complete set with EVERY potential action component you may need to replace. (NOTE: We now offer a tall bass damper felt option for those late 70s models, just make a note in your order). Each part represents extensive R&D and top-quality components. Rubber Grommets - more rubber w/ a flat head design and a longer shaft keep tone bars more stable and better holds/centers the spring. Works with both original and common stainless screws.
Hammer Tips - True Tone with precise hardness to match original specs. Used by some of the finest techs around because you know they got the sound!
The maple core tips are hand-made in our workshop w/ Hardrock Maple and Japanese Neoprene. Damper Felts - Using the finest felt from England, France and Japan we custom laminate and cut every piece in our workshop. The lamination makes a more rigid base so they dont slump like original Fender dampers.
Now with tall bass damper option. Bridal Straps - An oddly crucial component of the Rhodes action.
These are the best weve found. Always remember to stretch them before you install them!Front Rail & Back Rail Cloth - Highest grade European piano felt. We include the upgrade/mod backrail felt which is 1/16 thicker than original. Reducing key noise and key bounce.
Glue - Enough for everything but the long felt strips. We also offer a hide glue kit for bigger felt jobs or you can use a synthetic hide glue, pvc-e, e6000 etc. Key Punchings/Shims - Often overlooked, the balance and travel of the keys is extraordinarily important to how these Rhdoes play. Detailed Instructions - Along with many helpful videos, written instructions are included as well.
Bump Mod - (Optional) - If you have slow keys and flat key pedestals you should consider the bump mod. It harnesses the power of physics. Much like anything that harnesses power to help those lazy keys get to moving. The Avion Difference - Not only do we work hard to make better parts at better prices we support our products.And we support our customers. If you get lost or just have a simple question, reach out and we will do whatever we can to help. Variation: Over the decades of production there are considerable points of variation. Really in almost every aspect. This kit is designed to work very well with a wide variety of these small variations. But if you have a compatibility question please ask.
NOTE: We now offer an option for tall or standard bass dampers for late 70s models with 5/8+ bass dampers. Please make a note in your order if you need these felts. You may not need to replace all the components now. But in general almost any felt or rubber probably needs replaced by now if its original.
We could write an essay on each component - and in some cases we have! But ultimately for most people what really matters is that we worked hard to make this kit available to you so you can have the best parts at a reasonable price.
Thats why we started Avion Studios and why were very happy to offer this kit. The Rhodes is a great instrument and somewhat unique in the keyboard world in that it is simple enough for technically inexperienced owners to understand, maintain and improve their Rhodes.
Other Things You Might Need: We offer a full range of other parts and services. And if you have a passive Rhodes please take a good look at the RetroFlyer. For all the good these action parts do, if you care about your sound the RetroFlyer is simply the biggest leap forward you can take.
