  • Problem with Johannus (Opus 5 in particular)?

    Hi,

    I wonder if anybody could share their experience with Johannus Opus 5 AGO organ and the problems experienced?

    I bought it new 2 years ago and love it for my basic needs for learning, but a couple of months ago all those rubber springs under the keys on the great manual had to be replaced, as some started to fail to "spring" back after the key is pressed. The symptom is clicking sound on various keys.

    Now the higher pitch sounds seem to start to wobble, a bit like a broken triller / tremolo. This affects all "pipe ranks" and is much clearer as the pitch gets higher (e.g. right side of both manuals, gets clearer as from 8', to 4' and 2').

    It has a 10 year warranty and the last repair was done well though, a full credit to the selling dealer (and I suppose the backing by the manufacturer).

    Sorry if I use incorrect terms (or English as it is not my main language - despite living in Sydney, Australia).

    Thanks and regards,

    Jonathan

    Yes I have a Johannus Opus 10 and one of the keys started to make that clicking sound. I found out that the rubber gaskets under the keys make it spring back up. The idea is to have a physical feel like a tracker organ.
    Any way I took the key out and put some Silicon Jell on to to keep it lubricated and to thicken the thin rubber so it doesn't make the click sound. It works great I got it from a car parts place NAPA Sil-Glyde it's called. It's used for brake pads and rubber boots on cars.
