NOTICE: The shop will reopen at the end of April 2024.

What We do

We fix most any pre year 2K amplifiers and some post Y2K vacuum tube models. We don't fix car audio. We don't fix digital home theater equipment either. We strive to be the best at vintage audio repair and we keep our services focused primarily on just this one service.
My shop is equipped with sophisticated test equipment which enables me to measure and tweak your amplifier for optimum performance/lowest distortion. I can troubleshoot rare and unusual faults and fix it good as new, as well as correct defects in manufacturer design on some models.
Over 50 years of experience in the repair, design and building of vacuum tube amplifiers!

A WORD ABOUT INTEGRITY: It's not enough to just have equipment; it's knowing how to troubleshoot and having the patience to work deep into the problem. Many shops turn away repairs that they can't turn around in a few minutes. If it takes more than an hour for them, it's "unrepairable". With vintage audio gear, almost nothing is unrepairable. As long as the iron is working, the rest can be replaced/repaired cost-effectively. Even some transformers can be rewound. If the "new generation" of amp repair techs can't fix your amp, take it to Amplifier Experts for a positive outcome.
