    Watched your video and loved it. Not many women in the field Today. I’ve been at it for years I can remember fixing Keyboards for Danny Cintioli and Music Museum. Just wanted to say hello and give you a Heads up if you already don’t know about it. If you go out on emergency repairs or do sound or as a keyboard tec. You must have and I mean must have an ESR electrolytic tester. If you don’t already. You can find bad caps in seconds in circuit even without discharging them. Well 80 @450 you might want too to be safe. And those other big supply caps. But the small ones like 10 mfd 20 mfd 100 and so on not to worry. If you’re not going to re-cap the entire unit which you’ll probably do eventually The esr meter is a great tool to get a kb up and running in minutes,along with your multimeter.I bought mine from Amazon but you can get it from MAT electronics for 60-70 dollars or so It’s model Mul 3333 esr tester. Just sayin..What a lifesaver. Hope to meet you one day and see the shop. Sincerely,
