Hey friends! I just bought a used Roland KR-370 (super old, I know). My parents have the same one and I'm excited to have my own. However, 9 of the key hammers are broken. I'm familiar with the problem and how to replace them, but I'm not super excited about buying all new hammers (though I'm prepared to if necessary).

My question is, depending on the hammer damage, is it possible to just glue the plastic-metal hammers back together/reinforce them with epoxy/superglue/etc?

I have a lot of extra broken hammers from my parent's piano as well, ranging from slightly cracked to sort of destroyed. If glue would work to support a crack, but not put one back together, that's an option.

What do you think?

I would just try it and see what happens.

Super glue? No.
Epoxy? Maybe.

I went ahead and glued a whole bunch of them with epoxy, and they seem to be holding well--here's hoping they stay strong for longer than a week, haha.

Don't think you can buy replacement hammers from Roland any more. I understand they stopped selling parts to consumers.
