If you've played or even seen vintage keyboards on a major tour, chances are that the Hammond B-3, Rhodes or Wurly electric pianos, Clavinet, and synths have been gone through with a fine-tooth comb by Ken Rich Sound Services. Both a restorer and a customizer, his jobs range from bringing Hammond organs back to their original specs to installing optical MIDI systems on Fender Rhodes pianos. His client list is nothing short of a who's-who of leading artists across all musical genres, and he's known throughout the industry for his passion and perfectionism. Is he opinionated? Sure. Are his opinions worth listening to? If you're interested in educating yourself about what it takes to make vintage keyboards sound like they were really meant to under the rigors of live touring, you'd be crazy not to.

Ken recently invited us into his new facility, which is, appropriately enough, a converted recording studio.
