Comments:  Once again, Tim has done an amazing job fixing, restoring, and enhancing a vintage instrument. This time is was a Hammond C3. Thanks so much for your fine work and service.

Comments:  Tim is probably the best out there. He's honest, isn't looking to make a mint off of you, and is more knowledgeable than anyone i've ever talked to about vintage electronics. I would just about trust him to do open heart surgery on me!!!! (....i'd probably run smoother and sound better afterwards!)

Comments:  Tim serviced my Wurlitzer 200A. He was great to work with - quick turnaround, very communicative, honest, and quick to answer all questions. His services are VERY reasonably priced and his work and attention to detail are top-notch. I couldn't be happier with the Wurli after his repairs. I highly recommend Tim's services if you are in need of repairs, tunings, or general tune-ups to your vintage equipment. I look forward to working with Tim again for all of my repair needs.

Comments:  Tim's work is thoughtful, effective and highly efficient. He is a learned' and skilled technician as well as musician. His work on my Wurly not only silenced any impeding noise but improved the overall action and timbre of the instrument dramatically. I am thrilled to know him and will be bringing him my Rhodes and Wurly issues from now on.

Comments:  I can't think of a single negative point. Tim did an amazing job with my MircoMoog. Polite, professional, and knowledgeable. I am 100% satisfied and will say that nobody should hesitate in contacting Tim to get service done on their vintage keyboards and amps. He's top notch!

Comments:  Tim worked on my Fender Rhodes MkII... and did a wonderful job. He is also overhauling a Leslie 122 for me. Knows his stuff, very fair, extremely competent... and on top of all that, he is a nice guy. Highly recommended...

Comments:  I rate Tim Warneck a 5+++! My wife, a former piano teacher, and I were very fortunate to discover Tim on your web site. The amplifier in our Home wooden Rhodes piano failed, and I dreaded handing it to one of the music stores in our city. The experience with Tim from start to completion was excellent. His expertise is outstanding. Jim Clark

Comments:  Another glowing testimonial for Keyboard Cottage / Tim Warneck:

It really *is* difficult to overstate how great Tim's work is. He has worked on both of my Wurly 200s and is willing/able either to restore to the original specs, or to add his own mods/updates (variable speed tremolo, better pre-amps, shielding - it goes on and on.)

He's done work on my amps - tube and solid state - my synths/ROMplers, and all manner of electro-mechanical pianos, organs, and so on. (Electric harpsichord, anyone?)

There isn't a piece of gear in my keyboard arsenal that I wouldn't confidently place in Tim's expert care.

AND, like everyone else is noting in their comments - Tim's entirely accommodating and professional, has great ears for what makes an instrument sound its best (and has the technical chops to get it done correctly), stands behind his work 100%, is very reasonable in his pricing, and yes, a really nice guy too.

Far and away my best keyboard tech ever - I tell him constantly how happy and lucky I am to have found him!

I recommend him in the highest possible terms.
Yay, Tim!

-mike

Comments:  tim did an absolutly amazing job fixing up my fender rhodes 73. it sounded like crap and felt like it to when i first got it, but when he was done it was the most amazing sounding instrument i have ever played. im just a starting rhodes/hammond player only 16 years old and whenever i have a problem or need something fixed or ask for advice he always knows whats wrong and how it can be fixed and then he goes beyond the call of duty and makes it better then before

Comments:  I bought a Wurlitzer 206 in May 2010, and it was in pretty bad shape when I got it. I contacted several repair shops who were all slow to respond and wanted an arm and a leg just to look at the keyboard- I finally was referred to Tim and thank goodness. Tim did an amazing job at a very reasonable rate- I now have a 40 year old instrument that plays and sounds like new. I would not hesitate to refer Tim to anyone needing service on their electric piano, organ, keyboard, etc. I'm sure that as long as I'm living in the NJ/PA area, Tim will be my go-to guy for anything related to my Wurlitzer.

Comments:  Tim is even better than everyone says he is. He worked the trifecta for us at Turtle Studios ... heavily cleaned up and upgraded our Hammond B3 (upgraded from C2) and Leslie ... then cleaned up and upgraded the amp on our Wurlitzer ... and finally, totally rehabbed our Rhodes 88. He has had a serious impact on our ability to help folks make great records.

Comments:  Tim did an excellent job doing a complete 100% restoration from head to toe on my Hammond A-100 he's a great guy and knows what he's talking about. It sounds beautiful just as it would back in 1959 as it came out of the factory. I'm am confident that Tim will go on to succede in his business and prosper. So hats off to tim for he Is the best on the east coast no doubt about that.
