We restore Fender Rhodes instruments exclusively. We can bring (almost) any Rhodes piano back to its original showroom condition, or rebuild it with custom modifications and make it a unique instrument like no other. We’re a small workshop and this is our labor or love. We’re taking 1-2 Rhodes pianos a week by appointment in order to provide detailed attention to each case.

We hone this craft since 1994 and we keep perfecting our techniques. We take exceptional care in selecting the right replacements parts to perfectly fit every model. We have new-old-stock as well as re-manufactured parts to match the sound, feel and action of (almost) any vintage Rhodes piano.

The external vinyl cover (‘Tolex’) can be renewed with the original black Tolex or modified with a variety of colors and patterns. Tolex selector »

Tailored to your budget, backed by warranty

We provide free 20-30 minute inspection in our workshop. The inspection is done in front of the client in order to discuss the different restoration and modifications for each Rhodes model, condition and budget. Restorations are backed up by our warranty.
