Fender Rhodes Tuneup
Fender Rhodes tuneup resets the piano to its factory specs and dimensional standards.
Tuneup is recommended every 2 years in most cases.
1. Detailed Cleaning
The piano is disassembled and cleaned thoroughly using compressed air and various cleaning agents. Dust and foreign objects that slow down the action and create unwanted noises are removed.
2. Humidity, Rust and Corrosion Treatment
The Piano is inspected for rust, corrosion and wood dampness, and treated as necessary.
3. Wood Repair & Screw Reinforcement
Broken wood is repaired and loose screws are reinforced.
4. Damper Treatment
Damper arms are adjusted, and floppy damper felts are rejuvenated using. Worn out and torn felt may need to be replaced.
5. Action Felt Treatment
Action felt is cleaned and treated in order to maintain responsive, accurate action. Worn out felt may need to be replaced.
