In the late 1960's Peter Miller witnessed the birth of the music synthesizer and soon became hooked on electronic music and the incredible machines that made it possible. In 1970 Peter started a small pro audio company and began working with local bands. He began doing contract repair service on Hammond organs for Sherman & Clay Co., followed by stint with Magic Music Machines, San Francisco's largest musical instrument repair company. After gaining a couple year's experience, Peter broke out on his own and founded CAE Sound.
From the beginning, the mission of CAE Sound was to help working musicians keep their gear alive. That mission is still in force today. CAE Sound is devoted to the service, repair, and restoration of new, used, and vintage musical instruments and gear. They specialize in the vacuum tube and solid-state electronics found in amplifiers, keyboards, effects, and custom accessories. For equipment used either on stage or in the recording studio, CAE Sound has provided parts and service for professional musicians around the world.
Over the years, as some manufacturers either went out of business or discontinued support for older equipment, CAE Sound stepped in to fill the gap by remanufacturing -- even fabricating -- the parts required to keep this vintage gear alive. The result is one of the most unique and comprehensive inventory of vintage equipment parts in the world -- many of which can be found nowhere else.
In addition to it's vintage equipment parts and service offerings, CAE Sound has recently been expanding into the design and manufacture of a variety of new musical gadgets. Some of these products include a replacement power amp module for the Fender Rhodes Suitcase Piano that offers lower distortion and cleaner sound, replacement sustain pedals and sustain rods for that same unit, and the "Jangletone" preamp, designed to give an electric guitar a warm acoustic character.
