Valve Amp Servicing
We now have in house facilities to deal with the majority of valve servicing from simple faults to more complex re biasing. We can ensure your amp delivers the best performance so if that cherished Marshall, Vox, Blackstar, Mesa Boogie or any other make of amplifier is showing its age, why not give us a call to see what we can do. Our favourite servicing story was that we once had a 1960’s Marshall amp in for a service.
It was an attic find which the customer wanted servicing before putting it through it’s paces. Upon taking it apart we realised it had never been worked on since leaving the factory…and the quality assurance testing stamp inside it was simply initialled……’JCM’. The ‘Father of Loud’ himself was the last person to handle the inside of this amp.
