Our philosophy at Synthesizer Service

We are synthesizer freaks, so we are at home in any kind of analogue or digital synthesizer or sampler. Our specialities are service, repair, restoration and own developments for many vintage synthesizers (upgrades, modifications, MIDI interfaces, sounds and documents). Our main competence is the service and maintenance of equipment by Fairlight, PPG, OSC and Elka Synthex.

Our success is based on four pillars:  

  1. Technical competence
  2. One hundred per cent customer orientation
  3. Highest demand on quality
  4. Effective repair and service

1. Technical competence

For the successful and economical repair of music electronics the technical competence is extremely important. We are specialized in high end systems like PPG, Fairlight, Rhodes Chroma or Elka Synthex, exotic stuff like OSC OSCar, and of course any other analogue or digital synthesizer built in the recent 30 years.

Since we have testings systems by PPG, Synthex, Rhodes Chroma and Fairlight equipment in our service department, you only have to send the defective card, not the whole PPG Wave, Synthex synthesizer or CMI mainframe. Because you only have to send us a tiny card you can save a lots of money. We can put your defective card into our service units and do a very fast and cost effective job!

2. One hundred per cent customer orientation

The personal contact to you is important for us. Beginning from the first contact you will be individually looked after by a contact person. We will support you
at the local fault delimitation, the transport, inform you regularly about the status and give you beside the invoice a detailed service report. So you are well informed about the status of your synthesizer´s service. 

If you want us to repair your music equipment, you have to do only two things, no matter if you are at home in Vienna, Cologne, Hollywood, or Sydney:

We will organize the remaining things! 

If you are in the area in or around Vienna we offer you our individual transport service.

If you are an international customer we can organize our long term partner forwarding agency and additionally care about the customs declaration. The forwarding agency will call you for an appointment for picking up your unit. After repair the same cargo company will contact you when they can deliver your unit. Our forwarding agency operates world wide!
