A-102 photo 3406 viewsNotice the felt lining the bottom of the cabinet on this 1962 A-102. Nice touch but it was gone by early 1963 on my A-100. The 62 is quieter running in a silent room.

You have access to the lower key channels and the upper manual terminal strip.Remember ~ It's a good idea to use a piece of cardboard or something to keep from scratching the cabinet when raising the manuals. Be careful not to damage the drawbars, keep them pulled out if needed. Watch the back side of them for interference, lift gently and slowly.Unplug the organ before disassembly. Be careful of electrocution hazards practically everywhere when opened.
