With electronic repairs, the cost is the time involved in the strip down & re-assembly. The parts cost will be minimal compared to the overall cost. Non-guarantee repair work often involves time for the strip down work simply to access a small faulty component.

In the case of older instruments, especially amplifiers, replacing one faulty component can lead to further failures due to weaknesses of older components. A classic example is valves. These are recommended to be replaced in pairs rather than singly. Replacing one often causes the other to blow.

Always call us for advice before repair.

common questions

Typically we would ask for 24 hours but if its urgent we may be able to turn it around quicker.

No problem! We have specialist tools in-house to remove the mouthpiece. 

If we cannot carry out the repair in-house your instrument will need to be sent to a specialist. This will normally take a week to 10 days to turnaround
