We service and repair most types of pro-audio equipment, including:
Guitar amps (vintage, modern, valve/tube, solid state/transistor/IC, & hybrid), PA amps, mixing desks, power amps, pedal boards, speaker systems, effects units, switched mode power supplies, DJ, disco equipment, electronic keyboards. We specialise in boutique, vintage & rare amplification. Need a modification? We can do that too!
All items we service or repair are thoroughly tested before being returned to you. We believe that bench testing alone is not adequate to prove the equipment. For this reason all equipment is play tested. The equipment will be released only when it has passed both test programmes.

If requested, we will provide you with a provisional repair cost estimate based upon the actual item of equipment that requires attention. If we discover during the course of repair, that the actual cost may exceed the estimated figure, we will contact you for approval before proceeding further. Unless requested otherwise, we will proceed with the work up to a value of £150.00, before seeking further approval.
All prices include VAT.
