It almost seems willfully obstinate to make something which, although can be attributed with the sound of an era and made such a big impact on the way music can be played live or in the studio, also is incredibly complex and extremely difficult to move around. Well some people just don't care about that - they want the real thing no expense spared, and bearing in mind that the classic Mellotron is getting pretty long in the tooth and hard to keep going - in age terms it's probably past the sprightly pensioner and into the realms of complete memory loss and incontinence.... so I guess you don't have much choice but to make them from scratch. To the rescue Marcus Resch - he's been servicing and modifying these rare beasts for some time and now will actually make you a reproduction Mellotron - hand built at his laboratory in Sweden. As you would expect, it's not cheap at $6800 US (including flight case), but if you just gotta have one, then he's your man. Available from Big City Music
