your amp isn't sounding like it used to, or you have some gigs coming
up, then have it checked out to make sure it is peforming like it
should. Valve amps are more vulnerable to the rigours of the
road, but any amp could use some tender loving care
now and again.
In a general service I will cover:
Visual check of the whole amp: cabinet, speaker,
All connections: eg. switches, pots, jacks, valve
Check that all valves are doing what they should
and not doing what they shouldn't: eg. microphonic, noisy, unbalanced
phase splitter, low gain.
Make sure the biasing is correct.
If any repairs are required I will let you know what and how much
it is going to cost before going ahead with the work.
If you already know your amp needs some repairs,
or something has been found during a routine service, then I can
sort it out for you at our standard rate.
For your peace of mind I can check that your amp
is electrically safe to use, and issue a 'Portable Appliance Certificate
of Inspection & Test'. (see 'Charges')
Note that some event hosts, hotels etc, are requiring that pa /
musical electrical items are tested prior to the performance.
