Loft/Barn finds – handle with care

Here at Essex Amp Repairs & Guitar Services, we often see amps that have been found in various places after a lengthy period of disuse. Lofts, barns,  and garages across the realm seem to yield a surprising amount of hidden treasures.

If you’re lucky enough to find a hidden gem like this, be careful…. Avoid the temptation to get the prize home, switch it on and enjoy untold vintage tonal pleasures. Years of storage in poor conditions often inflict a surprising amount of damage to electrical equipment. Contacts corrode, capacitors dry out, insects often take up residence, and rodents may feast upon covering & insulation materials.

While you might be lucky and switch on without a problem, there is nonetheless a very real risk that damage or even fire may result.

Luckily, we can help you. Specialising in vintage amplifiers and audio equipment, we can check your equipment and remedy any issues prior to switch on. We can handle the nasty stuff, leaving you to enjoy the playing and listening.

Please call 01376 502160 or email for more information. It will be great to hear from you.
