What I do
Are you looking for a reliable tech to look after your guitar equipment (mods, service, setup, repairs of amplifiers, pedals, guitars, etc.)? Are the pots in your amp scratchy? Does your amplifier need a new set of valves? Is a switch in your favourite stomp box not working?
Have you changed strings recently? Is your guitar out of tune - need an intonation set up? I can help you.
I also do modifications (extra FX loops, changing FX loops from parallel to serial, tone controls, extra switches, pedals, etc.). I am very experienced in guitar amplifiers repair, design and customisation and I am fully qualified with a BSc in Electronics.
I am passionate about gear and will always offer you whatever solution I think is best for your needs, regardless of whether or not it brings me work!
I offer expertise, excellent service, quick turn-around, and all at reasonable prices.
