What do you mean by lubricant

Suitable lubricant for key pens

So, after the Christmas days you can devote yourself to the important things again;)

Thank you first for the plentiful answers.

Quote from OE1FEU:

I ordered Protek in England without any problems. But before lubricating, first polish, polish, polish what the pull holds and see if that doesn't deliver the desired result.

Of course, I'll polish first, otherwise I'll look around again for a suitable source for the Protek.

At FTP Pianoforti I was able to order Protek CLP and MPL as normal

Thank you for the hint, I'll have a look!

Congratulations on the Wurlitzer. Is this a major construction site or does everything else work?
I was once given a Rhodes Mark I, but the classic problem, the corrosion of the coil connections, occurred with so many tones that a repair was not affordable for me.

In my opinion, definitely a larger construction site: D It is currently completely dismantled. Before that, however, I was allowed to remove plenty of 50-year-old dust.

I am currently dedicating myself to the key decoration. I removed the old felt and the first keys already got their new felt. It's a wonder what a difference a few millimeters of felt can make in terms of feel.

When all mechanical components are overhauled, I first install the amp again and look at the result. But since I expect the typical Wurlitz hum, the electronic components will probably be overhauled again.

The Rhodes you mentioned is of course also great and a legend, but you're right, if you can't repair it yourself, you usually have to pay a lot, as there are only a few places to go for vintage electric pianos in Germany. Do you still have Rhodes with you or have you sold it in the meantime?

For fun I was looking for old Rhodes and Wurlitzers today, but the price has soared and the market is unfortunately very small. I could have imagined buying one or the other old electric piano in a bad condition and bringing it back into shape, as my current project gives me a lot of pleasure. But the electric pianos offered on the Internet are all expensive and in good condition. I couldn't find any specimens that were rocked down.

Best wishes,

Stephan
