Korg X3 Knob Block and Switches
Click to Enlarge Photo
CLICK TO ENLARGE

Worn out switches make the buttons of your Korg X3 difficult to use.  The buttons that you use most will eventually stop responding completely.

Only basic soldering skills are required to install new switches but you must be handy with a screwdriver.

While you're in there, it makes sense to change any dodgy switch.

Buy 'em by the sack!

Buyer Comments


IF A RUBBER KEY-CONTACT STRIP NEEDS REPLACING:

Check this parts notice.

IF A KNOB BLOCK IS BROKEN:

Missing YES Knob

The knob blocks are no longer available but, if you're desperate, all isn't lost.

1.  Disassemble the X3 and move the PC boards away from the front panel (see "Full Story", above).

2.  Get a Dremel® rotary tool with a tungsten-carbide cutter accessory.

3.  Enlarge the hole so your finger can reach through and operate the tactile switch.

4.  Burnish the hole's edges and clean up all the metal shavings.
