Pitch bend wheel "Clicky"

Post by FrancescoC » Fri Apr 12, 2024 4:22 pm

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum. I just purchased a Moog Grandmother. It arrived today. I love it, it sounds huge....but...I don't know if this is an issue. Check-out the short clip in the link. Mi Pitch bend wheel is "clicky" when it returns on the center position. Whatever I used it, even smoothly, I hear this annoying click. Is this normal behavior. I know there's a spring but I was expecting it to be more "silent".

Thank you in advance

Kind regards

Seems to be that way on both my Grandmother and Matriarch. Normal I guess.

thank you. Maybe I'm overreacting but some people told me I got a lemon. Their unit are dead silents. That's why I was concerned.

mine doesnt click anymore after years of use- but the good thing about that is you're assured it's returning to "home" pitch properly- mine wore out the "click" then I had to send it in to get the wheel recalibrated as it wouldn't always be pitch perfect at home... after getting it fixed I had no click, but still had the anxiety because the lack of "click confirmation" haha
