When electric pianos break down, the tendency is to throw them away and buy a more up-to-date model. Not always a good idea, as up-market older ones tend to have really good piano sounds. Repairing old and obsolete models is difficult, as spares are not readiliy available. My daughter's old piano blew the amplifier board recently, and I fould a guy called Mike Barden near Guildford. He's not a 'replace the circuit board with a new one' sort of repairer; he can test and rebuild the old boards from scratch, using basic electrical components. This means he can even repair pianos and organs that are no longer produced and no longer have manufacturer support for spares. He gives realistic estimates, works fast and really knows his stuff. He can tackle most makes of instrument. He's not ruinously expensive, and he's a really nice guy who hates to see a good instrument go to the scrapheap. No financial interest, just wanted to recommend a really good engineer. Website is here

Panic Music are good too, in many of the same ways - they really know their stuff; don't assume there's anything they can't fix, etc.

I've had them repair a Roland electric piano, a Sony 4-track minidisc system and a Trace instrument amplifier, all successfully.
They are a few miles north of Cambridge. (UK)
