[Harp-L] Re: Kinder AFB Pedal
Robert, I had to repair a Kinder AFB pedal for AC Blue (a great player from
Hungary who now lives in CO). He said it cut in and out. When I opened it
I found that some poor solder work on the pots had led to one of the wires
breaking loose and touching intermittently. I repaired the solder issues and
it worked fine.
I was amazed to see how much circuit work was inside of this thing. This is
no simple device, a LOT of thought and engineering skill went into it. I'm
guessing the circuit board production is farmed out and final assembly is
done under the Kinder roof, which may explain the very nice boards mated to the
pots in such a sloppy fashion.
The rest of the pedal seemed well built, so this might be the only one that
escaped with this problem. Has anyone else encountered reliability or build
quality issues with this device?
Food for thought: I'm of the "Keep It Simple" camp. No getting around that
lots of components = more chances of issues arising.
To be fair, this is a solid state device. If the design is good and the
components are of high quality, and if it is properly assembled... it should be
quite reliable. Take the plunge if it solves a problem for you.
