Hi everyone! Piano World forum NooB here (but hopefully not for long). I play in a band based out of CT that plays out all over New England on a semi-regular basis.
I have a StudioLogic SL-1100 that has served me very well over the years, but recently the keys have been having problems with the action. Specifically, the weighted action stops working on some keys.
My band plays mostly Southern-Rock, and as such, I tend to play a lot of "Billy Powell" type piano. In other words, I beat the Heck outta my piano - playing fast repetitive notes at times, which seems to have broken the piece of plastic that activates the weight. I'm technically and physically able to perform my own repairs.
My questions are...
* Does anyone know where I can find information on how to remove a broken key from the key bed?
* Any suggestions on where to source the parts?
Call me cheap, but I can't afford down time or costly repairs, so I tend to do whatever I can myself. Back when I played a real piano, I did everything except for tuning (replace hammers, straps, etc).
Thanks in advance, and I'm glad to have found a great community resource!!
