    I'm testing a friends K2600.

    Its got just one key with a Velocity switching issue.

    It don't work!

    Its just quiet, just enough to be noticeable, but it is surely a real
    Velocity switching issue.

    He said its a new issue and he has not used the synth in 3 months,
    (bought a Yamaha for touring)

    Any way,

    Will a Q-tip fix this?

    I need to act fact.

    I offered him $1100 for the K2600, orchestra card and CD ROM and two
    Zip disc's.

    Also, if it has a CD ROM is it a sampler? its not a K2600s but how can
    you load samples from a CD ROM?

    Thanks, I have far more questions but the Velocity switching issue is
    very important as I am about to call and offer him $1100.

    It looks like the synth has been gigged, some paint rubbing off and
    looks like it has been taken apart a few times.

    (Its not hellish, but for sure he used it to play live many times)

    Can I clean the Velocity switching pad?

    Can I get a new Velocity switching pad installed?

    Thanks!!!!!!

    not much action on this topic,

    I took it to the repair shop.

    Synth repair + holidays + Latin America = ROFLOMGWTFHAHAH
    weeks and weeks.

    I had to celebrate the holidays with a 1995 IBM model M keyboard.

    a fine keyboard at only $5.

    This might not help much but I would try blasting
    with one of those compressed air cans, maybe the air tube
    can reach between the keys if they are pushed apart a bit.
    The electronic part would be nearer the back of the
    key I would think.
