Korg Contact Strips

Post by eucarya » Sun Jun 24, 2012 10:56 pm

It looks like Korg contact strips for the Mono/Poly and Polysix are pretty hard to track down now. Every parts seller looks to be long out of stock and eBay seems dry. Anyone have any idea where to track these down?

Looks like there's a few options to repair old strips after the rubber eraser trick wears out, mainly these contact repair kits. That seems like the best bet now, but what about when the strips are actually missing? Does anyone know of modern substitutions or anywhere that might still stock old strips?

I have some of the rubber key contact strips if that's what you're looking for. How many do you need?

Scroll about 34 way down. Don't do the paint, it will just fail again after about a year. This is the way to go.

Edit: oops, don't know about the strips straight up...

...Can vouch for the 3-M dots (from Sounddoctorin) on several vintage keyboards.
