DAVIDSON AMPLIFIER REPAIR :: REPAIR INFO
WHAT I FIX:
Almost all American, British, and Canadian vacuum tube type guitar amplifiers, including Ampeg, Dr. Z, Epiphone, Fender, Garnet, Gibson, HiWatt, Laney, London City, Marshall, Matamp, Northcourt Supreme, Orange, Park, Peavey, Simms-Watts, Sound City, Sunn, Traynor, Vampower, Vox, and even a couple of West Fillmores! Look for the small nameplate saying "Made in USA", "Made in United Kingdom", etc., or just email me with any info you have and we'll figure out if it's probably American, British, Canadian or not. I am willing to work on the Thailand made Ceriatone copies of classic amps. I take in some Japanese gear including some 70's stereos and Univox amps. Fender amps made in Mexico are no problem. Fender amps ranging from the 1949 Pro, through Tweed, White, Brown, Black Face, to Silver Face, plus the Blues DeVille, Blues Deluxe, Hot Rod DeVille, and Hot Rod Deluxe roll through here constantly. I have fixed thousands of Fender amps, and thousands of other amps, too. If you aren't sure about something, just email me and ask. Everbody was a newbie at some point.
You will need to make an appointment to drop off your amplifier.
While-you-wait service is not available. Weekday afternoons are best, some Saturdays.
I make appointments in two hour time blocks, in case you are delayed, etc.
$50 Bench Fee collected in advance. An additional deposit for parts may be required.
9.25% TN sales tax on electronic repairs and parts.
When emailing, please list the make and model of your amp, a quick list of problems, and a couple of convenient times for you to come in. I am always happy to take time answering additional questions when you drop the amp off. Emails are usually answered promptly and in some detail if I get them during the work week.
You will not find my exact address on this website, because I operate out of my home, by appointment only, and I give customers my address and directions after we make a drop off appointment. I'm sorry to have to do it this way, but it's based on experience. I am located in the Lockeland Springs historic preservation district near Five Points or Woodland Street.
DAVIDSON COUNTY RESIDENTS ONLY!
New customers must be residents of Davidson County. This is another rule that's based on experience, and meant to avoid problems for both of us. If you live out of town, you may find it more convenient to go to a music store that takes in repairs, or an amp shop that doesn't work by appointment. I will make an exception if you have a substantial collection or genuine rarities that you wouldn't trust to anyone else.
