Good place to service a Rhodes Suitcase 88 in the UK?

Hi, can anyone recommend somewhere to get a Rhodes Suitcase 88 serviced in the UK?

I'm based in Cardiff, UK but the Rhodes is in Manchester. I thought that instead of going through the hassle of getting it here (i.e. renting a van as it's a big beast), then having to get it from here to the service place - and then back again - it might be a good idea to take it straight from Manchester to wherever might service it.

If anyone can recommend someone/somewhere, that'd be great

Thanks!

Eddie

Maciej Polak of Analogia will come to you and service your Rhodes, but you'd have to wait until he's next in the UK:

It would be worth checking out Hammond Hire in Coventry. Apart from Hammonds they also keep a stock of and service almost all vintage keyboards, including Rhodes, Wurlitzers, and a vast array of synths. They have recently serviced my Minimoog and Prophet 5 and both have come up great. They're real experts at what they do, and will do whatever is necessary from small fixes to completely stripping an instrument apart and rebuilding it making sure every component is in good condition! They are not the cheapest, but I guess you pay for their experience. And if you go there at any point they are normally more than happy to let you sit with a tea and play the B3s or synths for an hour or two. Just google them if you are interested.
