I am in the process of restoring an Ondioline. The instrument is essentially complete and generates many interesting sounds. The instrument has many switches, trimmers and tuning controls which makes tuning and setting up the instrument a real challenge with so many unknown variables. Does anyone have or know where I can get users and/or tech manuals for an Ondioline? Any language will do.

I guess I'll have to answer my own question. The following site has all the info on the Ondioline I needed and then some. Found the site through a French acquaintance who plays the Ondes Martenot. http://retrotsf.free.fr/ondioline/ondioline.htm

Sorry Mark....I would venture to guess that you already know far more about the workings of the Ondioline than the vast majority of us.

I assumed you already made a thorough search of the internet. I did one myself, but one could age a year sifting through all of the references to Stereolabs "Jenny Ondioline" to find any useful information. I didn't find anything resembling the in-depth information you were looking for.

Good luck with your project. I'd be interested to hear what it sounds like when you are finished.
