IF the expression pedal uses a lamp and light-dependent-resistor, check for burned out lamp at the pedal.

    Low volume could be caused by dirty voicing controls in the tone card cage, a tremulant or amp... sweep the "pots" with a small screw driver and return to original position. A dead lamp will cause it to go to full volume.

Wurlitzer C200 organ, volume pedal does not work, the Great keyboard is at full volume. Can't find anything online. Can you help me find information on repairing/replacing the volume pedal?


full volume ??? hum that's funny , as if pedal has broken one would suspect that it would go to lowest volume and stay there , 1st id ck to make sure the "bright" switch is not on or stuck on then id dive into taking the cover off the pedal assembly , for a look around to see if somethings obviously not right in there (hanging springs, swinging levers, etc)

Why does my lowrey organ not make a sound after I have switched it on?


This is a generic answer for this kind of question.
When there is no sound
Check the obvious.
Is there a light on the organ indicating it is on?
  • Plug it in to a known working wall socket, switch on at the wall
  • Switch on at the organ, check light
  • Very old keyboards need a voice to be selected!!
  • Turn master volume up
  • Turn any other volumes up
  • i.e. lower manual volume
  • upper manual volume
  • swell pedals down
Sometimes a sustain pedal plugged into a volume pedal socket will mute the output, check this.
Headphones out, most headphones will turn speakers off, sometimes the headphone switch can be dodgy, work the headphone plug in an out a few times
There maybe a switch that turns off the speakers, look near the output sockets
Software volumes up, check display, if any.
MIDI instruments, check local control is ON
Still no sound?
Can you hear anything from the speakers?
Hiss or hum usually means the speaker is ok
Total silence may indicate speaker failure, but only if there is one speaker, as in older home organs, or smaller keyboards
Try headphones next, TURN Down master volume first just in case!
If there is some sound, very quiet and gross distortion then possible power amplifier failure.
If your instrument has any kind of line out as well as a headphone jack, try these.
The line output will likely be a pair of phono sockets,like you have on HiFi equipment, 1/4 inch, 6.35mm jacks, like the bigger headphone connector, a 3.5mm socket like the smaller headphone connector, or even a DIN connector on older equipment.
Connect these to the aux (or Line or CD) input on your HiFi, guitar amp or similar. (some times these outputs will drive headphones, usually you will only hear anything in the left side). If this works then it is very likely the power amplifier.
Further tests on MIDI equipped keyboards would be to see if the MIDI does anything.
If MIDI out works and there is no sound, and MIDI in makes a sound this points to local being off, buried somewhere in the menu will be local on or off, make sure it is on.
If MIDI out doesn't work then the failure is likely to be internal power supply or something else critical (not nnecessarily major).
Power amplifier failures in newer, low power, keyboards are often the power amplifier chips (i.c,s), older amplifiers may have just blown their fuses but one or more output transistors may have failed.
Cost of repair will be down to the time it takes to get to the fault, taking these to bits and putting them back can take a lot longer than the repair.!
Hope this helps, Chris the Fader

I have just got my grandmothers Yamaha B-4CR organ there is low volume coming out but when I move the vplume pedal it doesnt increase the sound... What can I do


As I recall, the volume pedal on that model is optically coupled, meaning it operates via a light source. I'm afraid it will probably need a tech to come check it out. You can find on close to you by calling your nearest piano/organ store, or by going to the MITA tech site which has a search engine. Here's the link-

I purchased a used Hammond Organ Aurora, Model 700, 710 C125 but the previous owner did not have the manual for it. I am looking for a manual so I know how and what to do to play it. I don't know what...


Try the organforum . com. There are a lot of Hammond people there. The model 700 is the base model and probably enough to get you started.
Also just get a organ music book as a lot of the vernacular is in those. Also check your library for organ books. OFTEN the user manuals aren't much use to learn the instrument.

Most organs will either have tabs or drawbars. These select the type of "voice" and often one selects more than one as a mix. Each keyboard is refered to as a "Manual". Most organs have foot pedals. Each of the manuals and the foot pedals will have a seperate set of tabs associated with them.

To get started, turn on the organ and press the expression pedal which controls the volume... experiment setting a few tabs or drawbars an play notes on the manuals. You will soon learn what controls what.

Note that some models of Hammond organs used rotating tone wheels and those require lubrication. Those that do, usually have a power switch labelled "start" and "Run". These organs are usually higher value and one should have them serviced before using.

Where should the Zoom G1X go in a pedal chain?


From an electrical engineering standpoint, an expression or volume pedal should be near the end of the chain so that the other effects don't try to process very weak signals when the volume is very low.

This gives better signal to noise ratio.

Very littel sound in white and black keys. normal


We can only guess at what model/brand you have.

OFTEN such low volume things can be traced to a burned out light used in some expression pedals that use light dependent resistors to vary the volume.

Be aware that on some organs things like rhythm drums MAY go through a different set of speakers and amps than the other voices.
