Thanks Hugh.

Hi calou46 - this is what Berglund sent me. (Click for full resolution.)

I got mine repaired in the UK by Adrian Dolente at Synth Restore. In the US, they can be serviced by Matt Traum at Patchman.

(I guess you're familiar with the "Zero/Sens" controls under "Breath" which are accessed via a screwdriver without dismantling anything...? The first thing I'd try would be to centre "Sens" and sweep "Zero" from min to max to see if it produces any sound. If so, you can simply back "Zero" off until it goes quiet and then try the breath sensor.)

Hi and welcome!

It might be more effective to send a Personal Message (PM) to the Original Poster rather than hope he'll spot this addition to the thread... Either way: Good Luck with the project!

But he can't yet because calou46's only made one post. PMs unlock after three approved posts.

Ah! Not many people know that... :)

Hi BJG145 thank you for your answer.
Thank you to everyone who relayed my message.
I am very happy, I live in France, so I do not have access to these repairers. also with the help of the schema I will be able to help myself. Another big thank you to everyone. As soon as I have advanced in my troubleshooting I'll share with you if you're interested.

Good evening to all
