Def jam icon ps3 iso download Awesome video game, Def Jam Icon let the gamers use their own custom soundtracks from the portable devices and the Xbox 360 hard drive to fight along on your own songs in the game. Date published: 2014-05-10. Rated 4 out of 5 by cataclysm117 from Great game, but where's the sequel. Def Jam: Icon is the third game in the Def Jam series from EA. I freaking loved the first Def Jam Vendetta as I am a huge wrestling fan. By this point, the series had gotten away from wrestling and was more of a fighting game now. That though does not mean I lost all interest in the series. Style And Profile. The presentation of this game is great. DEF JAM: ICON™ features hip hop’s hottest music seamlessly infused into the world around you, the game’s environments pulsate, crumble, and explode to life with every bone-jarring beat. Time your attacks to the driving bass and use falling debris and exposed environmental hazards to pound your rivals.

Serial number locations are found:

1) On the piano’s cast iron plate, near the tuning pins, as you face the keys. Look to the right or to the left.

2) The Capo d'astro bar. Located on the right, this acts as a 'bridge' to the 'beams' of the cast iron plate.

3) On the piano's soundboard (see link above for a diagram).

4) On a metal plate underneath the piano's top lid, near the strings and soundboard.

5) Immediate interior [front]: On the back of the [a] keyslip (long wooden ledge, runs along the front/bottom of the piano's keys. The serial number is often hidden and stamped on the other side, facing the keys). On the front of the [b] action frame (after the keyslip is removed), or stamped on [c] one or both of the cheek blocks, viewed to the right and left of the piano's keyboard.

On older pianos, you may find 3-5 screws, underneath the keyslip, that will need to be removed (or, simply lift up, if no screws are present) to view the action frame. The serial number may be stamped on the front of the frame's wooden base, immediately under the keys.

To the right and left of the keys are two end cheek blocks, which are each secured down with a giant bolt or screw, which passes through the piano's keybed, both of which must be removed, to access the interior of the piano (see video, above).

Caution: When unscrewing and removing the cheek blocks, do not mistake the piano's leg screw/bolt, with the cheek block's screw/bolt.

Also, be careful not to drop the cheek blocks once they are removed, which can gouge and permanently damage the piano's case, and the block's delicate condition.

To recap: the piano's serial number may be hidden on the back of the piano'skeyslip (immediately in front of / below the keys), on the action's frontkeyframe, on the cheek blocks (each side), or within the action itself, once removed from the piano.
