I love getting something new on the bench, so this Henriksen amp repair got me quite excited. It’s a Henriksen Bud combo.
I hadn’t heard of Henriksen before, but after a bit of research discovered that they are a US based high end solid state amp, in the same market as the Polytone and AER brands.
The owner had inadvertently shorted out the Channel 2 FX loop to the speaker and killed channel 2. This destroyed an opamp in the signal path. The amplifier uses standard components which I keep in stock so I was able to repair the amp and turn the job around within 6 hours of it arriving in my workshop.
During this repair I spoke to Henriksen by email and found them very helpful. Certain North American companies aren’t always interested in supporting their products in the UK so I’d highly recommend Henriksen based on my conversations!
