PostForum Section: Electronics   Posted: 28 Nov 2019 5:14 pm   Subject: Pro-Fex 2 settings
Not in my opinion. I use one with a NV112 as well as a NV400. A little different sound of course but not because of the profex but because of the amp. Your mileage may vary.

I've been putting my bar on the keyhead since 1982 when I was in Duane Marrs store and saw him do it. It makes sense ...that's what the bar does(lay on the strings)

I would think right off that the B pedal raise is over tuned. There has to be some slack in the raise to allow it to return to G#. Make sure there is enough travel in the B pedal to allow it to raise ...

Have you checked to see if the 3rd string bell crank is loose on the cross shaft? I believe the early MSAs had round cross shafts.
