Common tool list for Rhodes repair?
« on: March 19, 2018, 05:43:28 PM »
Hello all,

I've been thinking about starting up a Rhodes repair business.
I was wondering, what are some typical tools used for repairing Rhodes pianos?

Thanks!
Why didn't Fender Rhodes stick with the lovely reflective Sparkle Top rail?

Chainsaw, forklift, OSHA 1910.133 shade 8 goggles, speargun.

That should cover it.

Or you could watch Vintage Vibe's youtube videos and buy every tool that you see them use.
