    Dummie question: Drawbar - Vdc and ground

    Hello.

    As the title says, a dummie question.

    I have a set of drawbars that I think comes from a E100.
    I'm making a Midi project with the drawbars and I'm wondering if the drawbars are grounded and are there any voltage passing through?

    Not sure I understand your question. If you have them out of the organ you can hook them up however you like, so you decide whether to hook them up to ground or not!

      In order for the drawbar to send a signal, then a signal or current must be sent to the drawbarhouse so that it becomes in contact?

        I believe the way it works is that there are 8 positions in which the drawbar can rest in which it bridges 2 conduits to create a certain voltage of the signal... I think. However, I do know that it's now like a fluid pot, and instead has distinct positions of output volume, you can tell that this is the case because as you pull out the drawbar it jumps from one volume level to the next. I'll take a look at one of my spare drawbar sets from an m100 tomorrow and let you know for sure how they work.
