Vintage Vibe Electric Pianos Cart

Over twenty years of learning, tweaking, and perfecting our craft.

Humble Beginnings

We started as a one-man Rhodes rental and repair shop. Twenty years later, we are the world leader in repair and restoration of electro-mechanical keyboards and the only manufacturer of a complete line of replacement parts for Rhodes and Wurlitzer pianos as well as Hohner Clavinets. This unique combination of expertise, talent, and resources led us to begin manufacturing our own electro-mechanical piano designs. In 2009 we launched the Vintage Vibe Piano™ and the Vibanet™ - modern takes on Rhodes and Clavinet keyboards with improved performance, reduced weight, and sleek new looks. Today an ever-expanding group of the worlds' top artists have been drawn to use Vintage Vibe instruments for recording and performance.

Our Team

Our ragtag team of renegade experts include master technicians, fabricators, and assemblers. We unite to provide our customers a wide range of electric piano products and services. Whether fulfilling a parts order, restoring the glory of a classic vintage piano, manufacturing the Vintage Vibe Piano™ and the Vibanet™ or creating educational content for our community, we go the extra mile and have fun while doing so.

The Vintage Vibe Piano delivers that warm and clear sound I love to use for my electric music. It's a pleasure to have that beautiful feel available for me to compose and play with.

Chick Correa

I asked some questions about my problem with Crossover distortion (I suppose) on my 200A and within a couple of hours I received a kind email from James who was pleasant and helped me with a detail description of the re-bias process, and advice on parts I needed. Thanks a lot and keep on with the good work!

Simone, Rome, Italy

When I pull up to a show with my Vintage Vibe gear, its starts a commotion. I haven’t even played one sound and people can’t stop staring. And when the gig starts, people are blown away by the sound.

Peter Levin

In the Vintage Vibe 64, you get the cream and belliness of the Rhodes along with the warmth and flat world of the Wurlitzer. This is not a compromise; it is a wonderful evolution and maybe the first one in the world of electronic pianos in decades.

Chris Norton

My search for the ultimate electric piano ended once I discovered the Vintage Vibe electric piano. Unique, reliable and Inspirational!
