Expect the bolts MAY be Metric. Try to find a sample and take it to a hardware store like Ace.

Clavinova CLP-360 missing Part G Screw Set (page 1 after the Contents of Owners Manual)

First of all they are metric fasteners. The best thing to do is measure the diameter of the hole with a metric of English ruler, then measure the depth of it with something skinny Using that info go to a hardware store and look for a fastener that fits the description. There are going to be different thread sizes. Get one of each and try them out to see what is the right one.

Arm keeps on tilting down even if allen screw is already super tight.

What has probably happened is the area that the set screw seats has worn to the point it just can't hold. This is probably a casting so repair of the surface would NOT be possible... If it was mine, this is what I would do: I would position it exactly where I wanted it and take it down to a drill press and drill a hole through that area that looks like a half-moon, not too near but close to the edge. Install a ROLL PIN in the hole to permanently "freeze" the position. Make sure you use the correct size drill for the roll pin... say a 5/32 or thereabouts size. Find roll pins at a hardware store and look up correct drill size. They do fit tight so you will need to use a vise or large pliers to squeeze it into place. To me it looks like the design of this product is sure to fail after some use. One other possibility is to freeze the thing using JB Weld epoxy between the moving parts... clean surfaces well before applying the epoxy... and do use a metal filled epoxy like JB Weld. In any event, the set screw will never acheive a solid mount again after it is worn.

My KD-8 bass drum pad will now only trigger if it is hit really hard- I've tried altering the sensitivity at the brain to no avail any ideas please ? Thanks

SOME of these have a small potentiometer inside the pad part... The pot is VERY fragile and one needs a small jewler's screwdriver to adjust. You have to be careful as excess pressure on the screwdriver breaks the part off the circuit board inside. The access hole is only about 1/8 inch diameter.

I have a Numark C2 19" mixer. I am missing one of the small screws right next to the crossfader and need some replacements. Where can I get them and/or what size are they so I can buy them at my local...

They are LIKELY metric and the best way is to remove another and take it as a sample to a hardware store.

Use a nut to find the correct size thread and then find the matching screw and right length.

My tyros 2 has fallen down very the left bass octave is off pitch(half note Higher) when i play the keybord with the accompaniaments.It works right ONLY when the ACMP is disambled what can i do....

Likely you have damaged the pitch bending wheel and offset it.

Try to pull it on pitch with the wheel... IF YOU CAN, then the alignment of the detent of the wheel has been disturbed and unit will need servicing... There are a lot of screws to open this and several very tender cables that can be damaged... I would recommend you take it to a shop experienced on this keyboard.

Mackie Mixer 1604VZL pro, needs parts

A local hardware store with drawers of screws should have what you need. The screws may be metric.

Take a sample screw with and find a nut to fit it to get the size and thread pitch. Then select a screw of that size of an appropriate length..

Nothing is worse than getting something that has obviously been worked on... you know it has a problem that they tried to fix and if you are lucky, they did not create others.

Key won't come back up on Roland digital piano

Roland FP is a nice keyboard but has a known problem on cracking key weights. There is a counter weight under each key to push the key upward. There are two sizes of weight beams, longer one for white keys and shorter one for black keys. Roland did not make the original weight beams strong enough to last. They will crack and eventually break. When it happens, the key will stay down. Fortunately, they can be easily replaced.

Roland FP-8 has 4 black screws at the bottom on each side end. Remove the screws, flip the ends up and expose the interior. Near the hinge of the problematic key, carefully ply open the hinge tabs and remove the key from the hinge. You will find a weight beam under the key. Remove and inspect the weight. There should be a metal wrapped in a plastic beam. If the metal part is missing, find the missing part and replace with a new beam. You can order weight beams from Roland. It costs about $10 each plus shipping. Put everything back in the reversed order.

They should be commercial screws, probably metric. You would need to find out the pitch (with a gauge), diameter, length and head type from one of the other screws. Usually all Boss products share parts, so the parts could be scavenged from an old, useless pedal. The missing knob, too. As for the internals and electronics, take it to a tech. Amp techs sometimes accept checking pedals.
