Subj: Re: [kl] mechanism
Date: Sun, 6 Jun 1999 22:19:34 -0400

I've noticed that there are a lot of repairmen on this list. i recently
purchased a brand spanking new buffet r-13, and am very pleased with it. One
of the complaints that I have with it is the noise that the mechanism makes.
The action on some of the keys seems.....almost.too light ( for lack of a
better way to put it) some of the keys, especially the right hand b-natural
key make a lot of noise when depressed, and it also feels like that
particualr key has too much travel room on it. I realize that the key must be
opened a certain distance for intonation reasons, but I don't like it. Is
there anything I or my repairman can do to fix this, or at least help it?

I've had my R-13 for about 5 years. And I've always been annoyed with the
clunkiness of the pinky keys..especially the long B. Well I finally took it
to my repairman and asked him if he could do anything about it, he said
definetly. So it is possible to fix the problem, with a good, reliable
repairman. He said he just need the horn for a few days and he could fix all
the little problems, extra noises, clunkiness, etc. Now I certainly don't
know how its done, but it's possible to fix. :)
