I'm a Fender Rhodes enthusiast and owner of one of Europes largest collection of Fender Rhodes and Rhodes pianos ranging from a 1963 Goldsparkle Piano Bass, a 1964 model Fender Rhodes Sparkletop Suitcase piano, two Dyno-My Piano modified Mark II's, the extremely rare Mark III EK-10 and the Mark V. I perform all kinds of repairs and adjustments your piano may need and I'm always ready to help when it comes to whatever problem you might have with your piano. I can also provide parts.

Comments:  Jon is one of the most devoted lovers of the Rhodes in the world. His collection is one of the greatest in the world and is close to complete. He's a 100% guy and we love to trade secrets, ideas and parts. Your piano can't be in safer hands.

Comments:  I will highly recommend Vintagebua. They made my old Rhodes fresh sounding and fit for fight. Also I was fortunate to play their Mark 5 on a jazzgig in Hamar, Norway, oktober 2004.

Comments:  I have just bought a fine example of Rhodes Mark II from Vintagebua and was very pleased with the service Jon Furulund provided. He is not only a highly skilled organ/Rhodes restorer but also a great authority on the history of these instruments.

Comments:  Jon Furulund has restored my Rhodes Mk I from very tired to the best possible condition this instrument could ever be in. He has been nothing but extremely service-minded and dedicated, and I wouldn´t hesitate for a second letting him work on another instrument. Enthusiasts like him are very rare these days. Thanks a lot, Jon!

Comments:  I sent my Rhodes Mark II to Jon for service and modification and was very pleased with the result. He changed all the hammer tips and grommets and managed to bring forth the "bite" and the mellow sound I was looking for. He also supplied me with an original sustain rod and a new Rhodes logo. Jon is a great guy and a dedicated and very talented Rhodes technician, and I would highly recommend him to those needing their piano serviced.

Comments:  Jon made/designed me a pedal of their stewart type preamp on my request and it really improves, gives me more control of the sound of both my rhodes mark 1 and my nord electro. The preamp sounds is very clear and the sound is well defined with more gain than the original preamp. It's fitted with the regular volume and three eq buttons which gives you excellent control over the bell sound, mid thump and the growling bass tones. In addition it is also fitted with a true bypass and a gain swith.
The pedal adds spark to the Nord electro and you can get the bell sound from the samples which is not possible with the built in eq. It also adds spark to the grand piano samples so it cuts even better in a live mix. The Hammond sound is also interesting through the preamp but in my setup the hammond is routed to a leslie and the pianos goes to the preamp.
I really commend Jon and vintagebua for their quick response, customer support and excellent work. They're pre-amp really adds new spark, not only to my rhodes sound!

Comments:  I just had my 1979 Rhodes MK 1 Stage Piano refurbished at Vintagebua and I am amazed by the result. The piano was fully serviced (general tune-up) and had some hardware/parts replaced. It sounds beautiful, with even action and response. I will not hesitate using Vintagebua for future servicing on my Rhodes piano.

Comments:  My 1977 MK1 Stage-73 has recently been serviced by Jon, and the result is just perfect. He also installed the preamp, and that added a new dimension to the sound. I am very pleased with the service and help Jon has given me. Thanks!
