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

Water damaged Rhodes

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.


6. Tonebar Grommet Treatment

Flexible rubber grommets are essential for stable tone and consistency of voicing. Grommets in good condition are treated, and worn out grommets may need to be replaced.
