I can do some repairs. I'm located in Boston. I also know another excellent technician so chances are if I can't fix it, he can.

For your Hammond needs in or near Atlanta, GA, USA, you should check out Richard Goodsell at

He's very good. He's also -erm- a character. Some would say a curmudgeon. I get a h**l of a kick out of the guy.

He no longer deals with vintage keyboards other than Hammonds. It's a crying shame.

Northeast Ohio, Cleveland area:

Beamish Electronics
4560 State Rd.
Parma, Ohio

I have no direct experience with this place as far as synths goes, but he repaired my Crest power amp recently, and his reputation for music gear repair is growing.
As always, kindly allow for the possibility I have no idea what I'm talking about.

i actually use this place often. good service. they did take ~ 1 year to get my k2600s repaired. mostly due to the fault of kurzweil who were in the midst of a lawsuit and had a stop-shipment on parts. audio electronics gave me a discount on the parts and labor once it was all said and done. kudos to them.

I can't vouch for these guys' services personally yet, but they've been highly recommended to me by a few different sources as synth specialists, and were real helpful in answering my demands over the phone. They're also the only place I've found in Sydney that will service and repair analogue equipment.

Cantos Music Foundation's tech is great

Post by Arghblarg » Wed Dec 28, 2005 8:31 pm

John at the Cantos Music Foundation ( is a real wiz.
Rebuilds whatever you can throw at him and maintains all the vintage synths at the museum (which is a definite must-see if you're in Calgary, AB by the way -- they have the miniMoog serial #001, Elton John's white piano Keith Emerson's Prophet(?), lots of other one-of-a-kind gear)

In the Detroit, MI area the best place to take a synth is

Electronic Innovations
St. Clair Shores, MI

They do exceptional work on both vintage and newer synthesizers. They also repair tape recorders, mixers, ect.

They restored my Moog Micromoog and my ARP Odyssey for me in the past and they are currently restoring an ARP Solus for me as well. Great people to work with.

This is a great thread.

Midwest Music Menders
Chicago, IL (USA)
Vintage synths, fancy analog consoles, anything that's not digital.
New phone: (773) 267-7367
no website
New address: 3422 N Elston

This place will fix anything, but it will be very very expensive and will take a long time. Maybe it's just that they're in the midst of moving and they're backed up, but it took 6 weeks and cost $275 for them to fix my ms-20, doing the following:
replace volume pot
modify output transformer to 120v from 220v.
