I tried fixing the 2-3 notes of the keybed, and when I put back together, there were more missing notes not playing. So, for now, i will be using a MIDI controller to connect to the brain of the M3.

But, eventually, i would like to buy a new/used keybed. I heard they were made by FATAR, but I could not find anything. is there somewhere I can buy a new M# compatible keybed?

Thanks,

Taki

Have you seen Loraine Gordon's repair video on you tube for the M3 Keybed.
Hers was wet, but if you watch the whole thing especially the end,
she covers the fact that she had to open it multiple times and carefully put it back together.
In the end she got all keys working again. Maybe this will help you.
I have to take mine apart because it got rained on also and,
I have 6 keys in one spot that do not work. I am using a Yamaha KX88 controller for now.
Regards,

Tony

Well, I took my M3 73 keyed apart and cleaned the contacts just like Loraine Gordon's video and it worked. Now my keys are all fixed.
Very Happy now.!

As for the person who offered the keybed. Call me at 216-956-8617. make sure all keys are working and a reasonable price before you call.
