Sad News

Monday Night we lost a member of the Vintage Vibe team. Head electronics tech Greg Hodowanec passed away and he will surely be missed. He was a great man and an expert technician, luckily the knowledge he has shared with us and many techs and players around the world will live on and we are truly grateful for that. Rest in peace Hody.

New Shop

Well it's been a crazy couple of weeks, but we are now in a new shop located in Rockaway, NJ. We completely out grew the old one so it's good having the extra space. We will be showing pictures and video of the new place on our flickr and youtube pages soon so keep an eye out for that.

In the mean time we are keeping busy repairing and restoring pianos. We are also working hard on a super secret project that will be unveiled by the end of the year - it will be guaranteed to knock your socks off so get excited for that!

We are finishing up on a large number of restoration we have been working on. In the last month we have worked on a Fender Rhodes from many different years - 66,69,70,71,72,73,76,79 and even the new Mark 7. We also did a repair on an 88 key suitcase that used to belong to Yoko Ono's producer. While most of those pianos are spoken for we do have a beautiful white Wurlitzer 140B for sale on eBay that looks and sounds absolutely wonderful. Be sure to check in with our flickr page to see what's been keeping us busy lately.

News and Updates

We're staying very busy here at Vintage Vibe with repairs as well as a top secret project we have going on.

We have a couple vintage items on eBay at the moment including a Roland Jet Phaser (which is the same pedal used on "Who's that lady?" by the Isley Brothers.

In effort to get with the times (kind of ironic for a company with "vintage" in the name) we have set up a twitter account ( as well as a page on facebook where you can get news and updates straight to your favorite social networking site. We are also on myspace at .

2009: Year In Review

2009 was a crazy year for everyone in terms of the economy, job stability and an over all fear of the unknown which consumed most everyone. We are so very grateful for the clients that have chosen to spend their money with Vintage Vibe, we know it means a lot to you and it certainly means a lot to us.

Luckily we are still growing as a company even in these uncertain times. We have been trying our hardest to be on the cutting edge and push ahead while not resting on our laurels. We will have some great new products for everyone this year which will ensure the future of these pianos.

Speaking of ensuring the future of these pianos, we have spent an incredible amount of time offering our free video tips on for everyone to learn from. This is one way Vintage Vibe is keeping these great electric pianos alive and kicking. As long as there are people learning this craft, they will never die. We also will be there to offer our excellent quality parts to everyone.

We have had so many great customers this year who have trusted us with their piano. I can honestly say it was a great learning experience for us and that you never stop learning with every step you take.

We did major work for Steely Dan this year for their world tour; we completely refurbished 3 of Donald Fagen's 88 Suitcase Pianos. One was a Fender Rhodes and the other two were Rhodes pianos. We did our best and the finished products were spectacular. We spent 3 full weeks on these pianos with 3 techs on each one. We also did a Wurlitzer 146 and a Clavinet D6 for Donald.
Norah Jones had brought us her Wurlitzer 206 in for repair and it very much needed it; we rebuilt it and then custom built her 3 sustain pedals with extra long cables so she could stand up and play. You can see these on her David Letterman performance on

Ani Difranco trusted us with here Wurlitzer 200A for her tour and then invited us to her Philadelphia Electric Factory show as well as her NYC Town Hall show. We spent a day up at the Conan O'Brian show with Canada's great Chromeo; that was really fun. Let's the top of my head we met some great new clients- Man Man, Nate Walcott of Bright Eyes, Phish, Duncan Sheik, and so many more.

This year Vintage Vibe has adopted a policy of giving back. Children's charities are close to my heart as there is nothing more innocent than a child. To see or hear of a child that is suffering just rips my heart out. This is why Vintage Vibe gives every month (as well as the profits from our Rhodes Repair Video) to two Charities, one being the Hole in the Wall Camp, which was started by Paul Newman and offers, free of charge, the experience of a lifetime for seriously or terminally ill children. They are invited to sleep over the camp with a medical facility at hand. Most of these kids would never have this opportunity without this wonderful charity. Please look into it for yourself. Another is the famous St. Jude's children hospital and they are on the forefront of cancer treatment and no child is ever denied due to money.

We truely believe in order to be rich or fulfilled you need to give; even if you only have 2 pennies, give one away. It will come back to you ten fold. Just go out and give freely and see how it feels!

See you in 2010, we have a huge suprise awaiting everyone!!
