Hey EM types!
I have a question about my Williams Space Odyssey. Maybe this is nit picking, but...
I am a huge fan of the sound of a pinball machine knocker. I grew up, like many of you, chasing that sound around in arcades across metro Detroit. Last year I got my Space Odyssey and I have pretty much fixed it up with one exception - the knocker. It just sounds, well, bad. Not loud. No real THUMP when a match happens. I replaced the coil sleeve, plunger and grommet with parts from Steve at Pinball Resource. Still no real THUMP.
I want that THUMP.
I guess at this point I have two questions:
1. Is it just that the old Williams EMs had inferior knocker units and what I'm getting is the best it will get. If so, I suppose I can live with that.
2. If that is not the case, what would you guys recommend? Should I just swap out the entire knocker and if so, with what from where?
Again, I know this might sound waaaaay too nit picky to some, but I love that sound and I want to hear it in my home.
Thanks as always.
