Guitar Repair

With a certificate from Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery and years of experience working for renowned shops, I am well qualified to help you maximize your guitar playing experience. I offer basic guitar setups on electric guitars and basses and can repair/replace the electronics on your guitar as well.

Amp Repair

I have been designing, building and repairing tube amps for almost a decade and love bringing older amps back to life. Wether you are looking for a re-tube re-bias, mods, or a new cabinet, I am excited to help you get the most out of your amp. Check our pricing breakdown below.

Amplifier Repair Pricing

Our Bench Fee for giving an assessment and estimate of work needed is $25.

Hourly rate for repairs is $60, $50 for locals.

Included in the first hour is the bench fee, tube check and re-bias, any cleaning and tightening of components and replacement of easily accessible components. Typically an hour gets most amplifiers good and going. Things that may increase the time above 1 hour include:

  • Transformer replacement

  • Tube socket replacement

  • Working on an amplifier with PCB’s that need to be removed to access components

  • Extensive replacement of components such as a ‘Cap Job’

  • Other repairs that require more time

Power cord replacement is a flat $15 plus the cost of the cord.

Speaker replacement is a flat $25 labor per speaker, plus the cost of the speaker.
