well as repairing music keyboards of all ages and brands (some
under warranty), BACKLINE also services
most types of vintage keyboards from electric pianos like Rhodes
and Wurlitzer 200/200A's, to electronic keyboards and synthesizers
by Moog, ARP, Roland, Korg, Yamaha and others.
Whether you need your Wurlitzer 200 tuned, or you're preparing
a collectible Moog synthesizer for sale on Ebay, we know how
to keep your rare and collectable gear in top condition or bring
your ailing vintage pieces back to life.
Electric piano, keyboard & synthesizer repair
Electric pianos used in the home or studio, and especially on
tour, should have regular maintenance. We have worked on hundreds
of Rhodes and Wurly's, and we can repair all aspects of electric
pianos from the mechanical parts to the electronics.
Not limited to pianos, we are also experienced at troubleshooting
and repairing synthesizers by Moog, ARP, Roland, Korg, and Yamaha.
We are musicians and vintage gear enthusiasts ourselves. We
don't just use test equipment to repair your gear - we use our
ears too, ensuring that your gear passes a thorough "play
and listen" test before the repair is complete.
Keyboard and synthesizer restoration
Full restoration is good idea for older
pieces, especially if they have been in storage for an extended
Keyboard restoration often involves internal cleaning for
performance and reliability; reconditioning power supplies;
cleaning key contacts; flushing and re-lubing pots, rotary
switches and slide switches; cleaning/reconditioning internal
contacts and connectors; and calibration.
We are happy to remove mods, and we can maximize your gear's
performance while keeping it as stock as possible.
Our 25 years' combined experience, vast collection of vintage
gear schematics and parts, and network of vintage parts suppliers
helps us give your gear new life.
We understand that you want your gear to function, sound and
look its best, so we pay special attention to aesthetic restoration
too. We can manually clean every knob and key, the chassis,
and clean and touch up "woodwork".
