About Newtone Repair Shop
Newtone Repair Shop is a natural extension of our passion for vintage and new electronic instruments. It is the part of Newtone that takes care of Hammond and Leslie restoration and repairs, vintage organ and synthesizer repairs, electromechanical instruments like Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Clavinet etc. repairs and development of replacement parts for these instruments. Our clients are performing musicians, companies, rental companies, collectors and private customers.
Newtone Repair Shop is a continuation of Vintagebua that Jon Reidar Furulund and Tom Erik Skram started together 15 years ago. Over the years, Vintagebua became the biggest player in the Scandinavian market for vintage instruments such as Hammond, Leslie, Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Hohner Clavinet, Vox, Farfisa, Philichorda, tube amps etc. When Tom Erik Skram joined forces with his new partners, Newtone Repair Shop was born. Jon Reidar Furulund continues his work at Vintagebua in close cooperation with Newtone.
