Hello folks, Bill here.

Just bought a Roland HP330 with a couple of querks.

The Bflat4 key is more sensitive to touch than the other 87, which all seem to play about the same. Any way to regulate/adjust a particular key, or will this need a new key or some type of sensor?

Damper and Soft pedals do not work, but the sense-a-noodle seems to be happy with its new name and position. Don't know if the outboard pedals are normally open or closed in their up position. Would also be helpful to be able to check them at the plug to piano case connector, but don't have a diagram to show what's what at the end of the wire.

Speaking of what's up, is there any source of online maintenance info/ manuals / etc. available?

Does anyone know what year/years this unit was produced?

Finally, I would enjoy from other who have or had played or maintained the HP330. I'm MIDI ignorant, so it would be nice to hear what others have accomplished in that direction.

A long shot here. It might be room resonance or speaker resonance. I think most speakers have a resonant sound which colours everything to some degree. Situation may make this more pronounced; I found this out when playing with the band years ago. Some locations were terrible; you could not damp down certain notes no matter what you did.
