WELCOME TO THE KEN RICH SOUND SERVICES SHOP IN VAN NUYS, CA.
We specialize in the restoration and servicing of vintage keyboard instruments, including the following:
we pride ourselves in bringing out the potential of classic instruments, and stabilizing them for the professional touring and studio musician.
We are specialists in bringing these instruments back to fully functioning form, and sounding as good as they possibly can. This involves rebuilding electronics for sonics and stability, action modifications and regulations, strike line adjustments, voicing and tuning. Many components wear down with age and playing, and require quality replacements. We manufacture many of our own parts to replace those that deteriorate with age.
These beautiful instruments become truly special when a complete physical and sonic restoration is completed. We offer cabinet repair, retolexing, new grill cloth, and new hardware. We will dye your Wurlitzer piano lids and refinish your Hammond organ and Leslie speakers. We can replace your cracked and yellowed keys with brand new key caps.
We aid numerous touring artists with rigs of all shapes and sizes, keeping them properly maintained and equipped to handle life on the road. We'll prep gear for going overseas, equip the crew with any backup supplies they might need, and custom fabricate cabling for their particular rig.
We also offer custom work and modifications to make your instrument something unique. Choose a custom color palette for your piano or organ, give your Rhodes or Wurlitzer piano MIDI functionality, have us install a Whammy bar into your Clavinet, or give your Hammond organ drive, EQ and an effects loop.
