A collection of some Rhodes restorations, and photos of what we do here to make Rhodes pianos shine again!
Golden era Fender Rhodes semi-restoration. Original Tolex! Voicing, tuning, action and general tweaking and fixes were done, as you can see the end result is quite nice!
Rob Barocco (Dark Star Orchestra) brought us his 1978 Fender rhodes for restoration. This specific piano was used by Bret Mydland of the Grateful dead, was pretty cool to have a piece of Dead history in the shop!. The piano has the infamous "Dyno-my-piano" mods done to the action & preamp. We've restored the dyno preamp and also added a mod which switches between the dyno mode and the stock rhodes volume/bass boost controls so Rob has the best of both worlds in 1 instruments.
Here's some photo's showing how we restore Rhodes pianos. The process is quite envolved from dis-assembly, to cleaning, new parts, electronic restorations, installation of new parts, hardware where necessary.
