Welcome to SYNTHTASTE!

Synthtaste is your specialized company for your analog Synthesizer. We’re techs, musicians, analog gear lovers and developers.

We love the sound od the real vintage classics from Roland, Moog, Sequential Circuits, Oberheim and ARP! We know these fat sounds aree still the first choice for music productions and live appearance. They still cut tru in the mix, undoubtly. 
But after a brief period of time, most of them use to fail due to overheating Power supplies, old and bad capacitors or even dead chips. Though the Synthesizers are real solid machines, all the manufacturers used some poor components with a limited lifetime, no matter, what you paid ages ago!

This is where we step in; our developers and SERVICE guys come up with new features:
  • new premium TP 9 Fatar-Keyboards 
  • aftertouch sensivity on request*
  • MIDI boards
  • new calibrated PSU’s with heat decrease
We’re specialized in these and other mods and we’re so proud of our features, that we even add new plates with our logo to the Synthesizer!

Imagine the new possibilities: new solid Keyboards (same size, way better action), aftertouch for amazing sounds and competely new dimensions, MIDI for DAW and Sequencer triggering, and the best: silent and low to no heat Power supplies for all voltages (88–264 V AC, 50/60 Hz for worldwide use without any power selector), developed and built in Germany. (*Aftertouch only if supported). 

We do develop our own boards, cards and PSU’s: no matter how old your gear is - we know how to service them.

Why choose Synthtaste?

We’re specialized. We’re experts. No cheap components.

We’re often confronted with (badly) modified Synthesizers - tho our customers told us, they send their beauties to „experts". It’s said we’re their last techs for service. Too many self-made experts do not really dive in deep to the machines: stupefying dump mods, PSU’s that won’t last long, cheap or wrong capacitor replacements, ugly soldering skills and more, wrong Chips, ROMs or hard-to-belive and awful services.

You paid thousands of bucks for a rock solid analog synth and get it „pro-serviced” not knowing, what you get back? Really? Why?

You shipped your gear worldwide for a premium service and received back a dead unit? They faint, heat up and misbehaviour? This happens so often, believe us. Our most customers are collectors or real musicians and producers. They usually have more than one Synth to be serviced - so they only trust us and our work.
Yeah, we’re likely more expensive than others. Happens. But if you need a real full service, do not run cheap.

We service the following Synths from these companies: Roland, Moog, Sequential Circuits, Oberheim, Rhodes Chroma, PPG, ARP, Synton u.v.m.

And boy, we did a few of them! Usually we do have some Prophet 5, Jupiter 8 in stock for SERVICE So we do service them a lot. No try and error, solid knowledge in fixing!

We're shipping with DHL Express worldwide! (~3 Day delivery). We had delivery problems esp. with USPS in the US so we decided to use DHL Express only which costs more but the packages arrive in safe condition and we can track shipping at any time.
