Bump / Pedestal Mod Kit

from 27.50

The action on early Rhodes models is notoriously slow. This mod remedies that problem by increasing the upward velocity of the hammer using a simple bump. This mod makes so much sense Fender adopted it for later models.

Although it's simple, as always, we took a lot of time getting things just right. So we're happy to offer a better bump mod.

And as usual....at a better price too.

Why it's better:

  • Better bumps - custom cut made in the USA
  • Strong, stable ABS with smoother finish
  • Precise cut and dimensions - adheres easily
  • Better felt - braided high quality European felt

Our kit includes the bumps, the braided felt and two tubes of superglue. To glue down the felt we recommend a synthetic hyde glue, real hyde glue or pvc-e glue. Our e6000 glue will also work but is less economical.

Nylon string or rubber bands will help greatly in the installation. We use a #32 rubber band but many sizes work well. Please check out the instructional video if you haven't already.

Here's a video explaining the bump mod. As always, let us know if you have any questions.

Perhaps the most common mod for the Fender Rhodes - and clearly one of the best. Here we talk about the mechanics of this modification and clearly demonstrate the installation. For more details, pictures etc or to buy the bump mod kits please visit our website: www.avionstudios.com
