How I Repaired the Slider On My Korg

Korg Slider Fell OffAs you may know, I have a Korg microKONTROL. The other night I was practicing my live electronic skills when all of a sudden my slider came off in my fingers… 🙁 I contacted Korg support, and they said the piece that holds it in was broken, and I would need to take it to a service center. I looked up the nearest service center, and found out that he was behind on work a month. The part is only like $7 plus labor. Then he let me in on a little known secret. If you’re really careful you can actually just use superglue to reattach the slider. I was thinking about doing something like that, although I didn’t want to mess anything up. Anyway, today I used some superglue on it, and it seems to be holding up well so far. GO SUPERGLUE!!! 🙂

I must say I was really distraught for a couple days there. It’s really sad to finally figure out how to use your midi controller, and then have something like that happen. I love my Korg though. We’ve been through a lot together, and it’s always been there for me like a best friend.  I had this microKONTROL for like 5 years without any problems whatsoever.

Now you know the secret to fixing your sliders that Korg doesn’t want you to know…lol

P.S.  A little update…  This didn’t hold for very long.  It worked for a temporary fix, although I still need to get it fixed the right way.
