David Lambert was boyhood friends with David Ellis’ sons. Mr. Ellis is the founder of Ellis Pianos in Birmingham, Alabama, who built a baseball training facility on the top floor of his store to keep his sons close to him. As a good friend, David was also often found in the batting cages at the store. Whenever help was needed to move a piano or help clean up, David was there. This led to more and more involvement with the store, especially as it related to electronics, a passion of his since he was a kid. His interest in repairing Leslie Speakers evolved into becoming the area’s certified repair tech for Yamaha, Nord and Roland.
