  • Gibson Clavioline Repair

    Hey,

    I'm working on repairing a Clavioline keyboard and cabinet. For the keyboard unit, I'm planning on just replacing capacitors and tubes as necessary, but for the cabinet, I want to do some more. I was planning on adding a IEC power socket, a female Leslie 6-pin socket, and maybe even an aux input.


    I don't know if I'm allowed to post schematics here, but it appears the fuse is connected to neutral, which I don't understand.

    If anyone has any experience with these, let me know.


    Thanks!

    No experience with these but ... in the days of non-polarized ac power cords, it was common to fuse one side of the ac line, and switch the other. The proper way to update the wiring is to fuse and switch the hot, with neutral going straight to the power transformer.
