Vintage Amp Repair
 

 

Audio Amplifier Service

We specialise in British vintage audio amplifier servicing from 1960 valve models through to the late 80s - what many audio enthusiasts regard as the golden era of  British audio design. Our electronic engineer has decades of experience designing and servicing analogue audio equipment.

Amplifier service from 110.00 per amplifier *including 12 months warranty.  Details of our warranty

Our standard service includes PAT test, troubleshooting, replacement of faulty and out-of-tolerance components, (resistors, capacitors, transistors, diode rectifiers, standard ICs), full performance check, soak test and labour.  We are happy to quote for modification work such as new sockets, transformer replacement, lead manufacture, etc., to total redesign work.

Drop off your your amplifier to our workshops or send via courier which ever option is most convenient to you.
To send your equipment via courier, pack it in a double walled box with plenty of infill material. We cannot be held responsible for damage during transit so please pack your equipment carefully.

We do not include return carriage in our standard service charge. If you want your amplifier returned by courier the appropriate return courier charges must be added to the service charge. The word 'from' is included to accommodate the possibility of unexpected extra costs*. The largest majority of amplifiers we receive are serviced at the 'from' price.

Courier charges to UK Highlands and Islands may incur a small extra charge to those shown above.

Multiple items eg. preamp and main amp in 1 box will typically cost the same as 1 item.

*The 'from' price is based on the approximate average price we charge for fully servicing these items. The actual cost will depend on the severity of the fault/s or condition of each item. If the cost is likely to go substantially over the 'from' price, after an initial inspection, we will inform you prior to service. 

Audio equipment received in a very poor state, or with faulty expensive components (transformers, chokes, scarce semiconductors, etc, elusive intermittent faults that require extra time to pin down the cause), will cost more than the 'from' price. We will contact you to inform you in this event prior to commencement of the work.  

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

  1. In a few isolated cases, a repair might require expensive replacement components such as, mains and output transformers, sets of valves, hard to source matched sets of power transistors and mosfets, large computer grade capacitors, and maker-specific hardware e.g., special switches, non-standard pots, etc. These items due to their cost and availability are not included in our price guide below. If this situation arises we will inform you prior to carrying out any work.
     

  1. Due to our large work load and difficulty in sourcing NOS obsolete components for non UK made equipment  we no longer repair amplifiers that are not listed above.
