Hello
Does anyone have an opinion on the reliability of the electronics of the LB12 Odyssey models from Cava?
Thanks

Hello,

I have a Cavagnolo LB12 Odyssey Orchestra 3 model 2008 non pro that is to say non customizable, it has the 20 rhythmic paterns + 20 original stereo sequences. There are also all the sequence packs, i.e. 80 more.
The only problem on these Odyssey models especially the Odyssey 1 are the contacts, mine was completely overhauled in 2013, battery (beware it is soldered), Replacement of contact bars and all contacts right hand, ditto left hand, new cord etc... cost 610 Euros. No problem for 9 years.
It is possible to replace them with "hall effect sensors".

Retrofit currently proposed:
UPDATE ODYSSEY "RETROFIT REVELATION MD" *
- Replacement of the right hand contacts only, by non-contact contacts in the REVELATION MD version (NON-dynamic touch retained).
- Review of digital records.
- Revision of the original cards and replacement of the elements considered at risk.
- Replacement of the backup battery (only if - Within the framework of our partnership, this intervention can also be carried out by HEXAGONE international.
Recommended retail price: 890 Euros

You can find all possible udpates here: https://daurelle.com/odyssee3.html

I am very happy with it after all these years, just take care of it.
The new Digit is much more elaborate but the price is related, one day maybe....


Sincerely

Hello pinpin,

The Cavagnolo LB9 LB12 are accordions without "mechanical" acoustics, everything is managed by an electronic card, i.e. magnetic contact button or the new hall effect sensor system (magnetic).
If you have a fully acoustic instrument you can also "midify" it:
