  • At900c wonky stand

    V pleased with my at900c but one niggly thing I noticed was it rocked side to side a bit if I push the kB so I investigated further, having looked under the console I see there is a large threaded bolt that should be on both the left and right of the console which secures the legs to the console, but it is only on the left not the right hand side of the organ, the right hand leg is also a fraction out of alignment, because the left leg is flush with the console side whereas the right hand side is jutting out a teeny bit but barely noticeable might be able to correct it if I had instructions, but not major problem, what is more important is the securing bolt!

    Have contacted my dealer to see if they have the bolt, but also was looking in user manual and see the user guide has no instructions for assembling organ dis-assembling, it’s not on the Roland at900c support site so wondering if anyone has it (which I don’t intend too much but would be nice to have option of moving it out from against wall occasionally).

    Fantastic organ otherwise, .... as long as i dont move it.

    Hi,

    i just purchased an AT900C a few weeks ago and needed to take it apart for the move. I was also looking for instructions but could not find them anywhere.

    The good news is the organ was designed to be somewhat mobile. There are 4 steps that my son and I did:
    - remove the 2 bolts in the front that you are referring to
    - take the back piece off the organ (it is a thin piece of laminated plywood held in place only by velcro). When you look up toward the top of the organ there are 2 large screws (standard) connected to the top of the organ, and you’ll need a larger long screwdriver to reach them properly. In my case I needed to unscrew them a couple of turns to loosen them. I don’t think they are meant to be removed- they slide in a channel that is connected to the lower part of the organ. If they are too snug you will have difficulty separating the top from the bottom
    - disconnect the cable between the top and bottom speaker cabinet. Its very easy to find and separate. I also had a CD player attached so I also disconnected that too since it plugs into the bottom usb of the organ and I didn’t want to damage the connection in the move
    - slide the top of the organ off the bottom (I think in a direction from back to front). You need to have 2 people -it is not excessively heavy but you could hurt yourself if you do it yourself, or lose control of the top piece of the organ since it is large

    It was quite easy but I just took my time. When it is apart it is easy to move- I wrapped everything up in furniture blankets before it left the sellers house.

    Based on your problem I think you are spot on with the solution.The missing bolt should be the fix you are looking for- that would certainly cause a lot of shaker missing since there is nothing connecting the organ together on that side corner. Someone must have had the organ apart for delivery and lost the bolt. If your roland dealer doesn’t have the bolt, you can take the other bolt to a good hardware store or home improvement store. I’m guessing it may be a machine bolt so make sure they match the size and threads. You may not find a bolt with the plastic end (that just makes it easy to unscrew) but you could just use a washer and tighten gently with a screwdriver. Either way it should be an easy fix and you will enjoy the organ even more- especially when giving those keys a workout!

    Hope that helps

      Thanks Mike for the full reply, I think I will try taking the left bolt to some hardware store thanks for confirming what I thought, it’s not that wobbly at moment but if I am to move organ I think best get one and will be nice to be 100% rigid. So trip to shops this weekend unless dealer comes back to me on this one.

      Cheers
