Critical action mod for Fender Rhodes and Rhodes pianos. Considered a "must do" for 1972-1977 models.
We call it our "Miracle Mod", and rightly so, as it works miracles on soggy and sluggish actions. This mod harkens back to 1960's Fender Rhodes pianos where a rounded bump was added to the pedestal via a metal clip. The principle behind it is that the hammer will roll over the rounded bump which acts as a leverage point. The difference between implementing this concept with our bumps versus the felt bumps found in later pianos is night and day. To put it simply, felt should never be used as a bump mod!
The Miracle Mod will work on any year piano from 1972 to 1977. It will work best on earlier pianos in that range but we absolutely recommend it across the board. Earlier model keys, circa 70-71, have the "Marcel" pedestal slope and seem to be lighter. We do not mind this action, but you are welcome to install the Miracle Mod if you like it faster!
