Amplifiers typically need a tune-up once a year, more often if you're a gigging musician. My tune-up jobs include:

  • Testing all tubes

  • Cleaning and lubricating potentiometers (knobs)

  • Inspecting all jacks

  • Testing high voltage filter capacitors. 

  • Cleaning all tube sockets

  • Performing a general cleaning of all accumulated dust, dirt, and grime

  • Inspecting of all components for loose connections or poor solder joints



Standard shop rate is: $70 per hour.

Most repairs are charged 1-3 hours of labor. Parts are not included. 

If you choose to not have an item repaired or if the item is beyond repair, there is still a $60 bench fee for diagnosis. My time and skills are worth something. This is a standard practice. 

All repairs must be picked up with 60 days. After that, they will be treated as abandoned and I will sell the item to recoup costs. 



From barn finds to road worn amps, I can bring your amp back to health and keep it running for another 50 years. 


Electrolytic capacitors have a lifespan of 15 years. In order for your amp to remain reliable and safe, these should be checked for failure.
