An over-sensitive pedal key (1 reply)
I have owned a Viscount 3-manual organ for many years, and it has been well used at home throughout that time with never a single fault: well done, Viscount! Now, though still perfectly playable, middle C# of the pedalboard has become over-sensitive compared to the other pedal notes, and I wonder whether the spring needs either adjustment or replacement. It is a pedalboard that can be unhitched, unplugged and moved back from the main console. Can anyone offer advice, please?
The easiest matter to check is the heel spring tension. To access the adjusting screw remove the wooden cover at the heel end of the pedalboard. At the end of each pedal stick is a screw or nut that if turned clockwise will increase the spring tension. The attached photograph shows this on a current pedalboard although your set-up may be slightly different.
If this fails to work you will need to explore the toe end contacts. Please refer to us for help with this if needed.
