Hohner Clavinet Restoration

The Clavinet is an intriguing instrument with a unique sound that has many specific traits. They are often overlooked for servicing and restoration if they just “make sound” but can be clunky as hell. A well performing Clavinet is a true audible and tactile difference.

The first step in any servicing or restoration project is the initial assessment of the various parts and tolerances necessary to achieve a high quality instrument.

Retro Rentals & Restorations offers a free comprehensive assessment, covering all major facets of the Clavinet, for any new client proceeding with our recommended repairs. A digital assessment may be possible for those not available in the Southern California region.  Contact us at or 310-926-5799 via text or call to discuss the next steps in your Rhodes journey.
