Here is L from south London, drooling over his active Lime Green (gloss) VV44,
personally delivered and set-up by KK on march 12th 2013.
'' I got my refurbished '76 Rhodes from Klassic Keys two years ago and I'm still excited about how nice this instrument is. Douglas was kind enough to custom paint the piano in ferra-red and as I was in a pretty tight budget and we were able to discuss all the details of this piano to suit my needs.
Meanwhile, when needed, I've also gotten replacement pickups/tines at a very reasonable price from Doug, as well as installation instructions - smooth sailing! ''
Lauri from Helsinki
"I've always dreamed of owning a Fender Rhodes Piano, It must be something about that "Rhodes sound" from the 70's that evokes all of my favourite bands. I contacted Doug from KlassicKeys with a budget, and he made it happen. He kept me updated of my new "Baby"s restoration, teasing me with pictures of her progress, and then delivered her to my music room. Doug spent a great deal of his own time going the through the workings and maintenance of my Mk11 73.
In my opinion he went above and beyond and helped me realise a dream. Quite simply the most satisfying parting of cash I can recall. Thanks Doug."

''Awesome service from Doug at Klassic Keys. My Mark I Rhodes was personally delivered to me in Swansea. If your looking to buy a Rhodes but don't want to run the risks that present themselves when buying on eBay then I can recommend Doug for sure. Great instrument and great company.''
