10 Things I learned after planning a trip to Japan: Introduction

I just got back from an amazing trip to Japan. It's been 23 years since last I set foot in the country and a lot of things have changed in that time! I thought I'd post the 10 things I learned while planning the trip and while there. Several things I learned before we left; several things I learned while there. I'm hoping that this might help a fellow traveler who's looking for answers about travel, ATMs, trains, money, food, etc. prior to leaving for Japan. Johnny

Synth parts adventure part III

Called Musician's Service Center today:
Nice guy but no parts. He said he did not have any cosmetic parts whatsoever.
I'll keep looking.

Synth parts adventure part 2

I called DBM pro Audio today:
No luck on the parts. They thought they may have some keys but would have to know exactly the make of the keyboard.

In Search of vintage Synth parts

I have two vintage synthesizers in need of repair:

A Moog Micromoog and an Arp Axxe.
The Moog is almost finished but I just need one volume/Glide knob to complete it. The Arp is a bit more challenging: it's missing around 10 slider knobs and has three broken keys: The low C, the high C, and the B above the lowest C.

I'm hoping that by journaling my challenge in obtaining parts, someone will pick up on this feed and help me out in the comment section. Let me know if you know of any vintage synth part resources.

Japan Adventure participants

In the hopes of connecting with other musicians and students who were part of the LCC (Lansing Community College) Japan Adventure program, I'm posting here, thinking that maybe Google with pick it up.
I was a musician on the Michigan Showboat in Hama Otsu Japan from 1988 - 1990.
Some of my fellow musicians included Bob Grunder, Dave Edgar, Lou Velásquez, Barb Nieratko, and Doug Decker.
Let me know if you were involved at all by leaving a comment below.
