Wersi Arcus Advice Needed
I purchased a (second-hand)
a Wersi Arcus 45CD portable. What a tremendous tool!
The previous owner(s) had fitted it with the RAM
Tower, and its range is awesome.
However, the reason I bought it
was as a “touring” portable organ – the Hammond
XE200 + Leslie HL822 was being ruined by dragging it
around. With its flight cases, the Wersi seems to
fit the bill quite well. Up to now.
The previous owner sold it to me
with a pair of 4ohm 200W specially-built passive
speakers, which sound tremendous. Or, rather, DID
sound tremendous, as they no longer make a noise.
Which is why I am writing to you for help.
I have discovered two blown 4A
fuses on the large PCB close by the toroidal
transformer (the left-hand pair of 4 fuses).
Not only do the passive speakers
not work, the “drum unit” fails to function, too. If
I hook up an amplifier system to the “Line Out”
jacks, all other functions sound fine – all
drawbars, voices, ram banks – everything is fine,
EXCEPT, as I said, the rhythm unit and the
So, could anyone advise on the
following, please –
Where can I get a
complete set circuit diagrams from? (with
schematics too, ideally) – I am an electronics
engineer, but not an organ specialist,
If I need spare
parts, is there a Wersi “Shop” that can supply
If I get stumped,
are there any Wersi expert engineers I could
Thank you in advance for your
