I found my DH-100 in a vintage geetar shop and it to had 'the squeal'. A guitarist friend of mine owns two and plays the working one in his weekend band using the internal sounds. He says: "It's not just the cheesy tone - it's the visual effect..."

Anyhoo, thanks to Dorian Rose and his clearly laid out solution - my horn is working! I'm pumped! Now I can actually practice with headphones with the internal sounds working...

It's unreal the sounds you can get controlling a quality sax/trumpet patch.

I have decided to try and learn the 'Casio fingering' (see dorians site for charts, etc) because of the unreal 4 octave range. My goal is to be able to whip off solos (I play guitars and keyboards) like some of the alto solos in Supertramp... It is like I just got a new sax or something.

Anybody else out there mastered this fingering?

Look forward to hearing about anybodys experience with this piece of magic.

I had a real musician friend who bought a DH100 as a toy, tired of it and gave it to me about six years ago. I'm no musician (played recorder in elementary school and flute in junior high school), but I have to say I've loved the DH100. It's a toy, all right, but an extremely fun one. No great skill, embrouchre or breath control are required, just the basic fingering. If you play by ear as I do, you can entertain yourself for hours. And yes, it can be used as a MIDI controller for much more sophisticated applications.

Unforutnately my DH100 developed the dreaded squeak and I have been forced to play it through my PC. I am nearly overjoyed to learn of the capacitor replacement, which reuqires only rudimentary electronic skills. I intend to rush out tomorrow to Radio Shack and buy a capacitor. I remain extremely hopeful that I can have my DH100 back in normal service.

Maybe I'm just easily amused, but...

Bought one for $5 at flea market. Also had the dreaded squeal. Found a bad electrolytic capacitor under the upper printed circuit board. If you are handy with a soldering iron and have the $2 part, it's an easy 5 minute fix. If not, there some guy offering a fix for $45- not too bad a deal. I suspect Casio bought a bunch of defective or underated capacitors. I've already read too many reviews with folks who have the same problem. Drop me a line if you need more help. Good luck

I just bought a dh 100 and I was hoping to arrange horn sequences on my computer. Does anyone know of some good trumpet, sax, trombone patches I could purchase online for my computer as a plug-in for this purpose. Someone mentioned delay, is there a lexicon(or close to it) plug-in effect I can purchase for that purpose? Thanks Bob
