Roland Cube Repair

Roland Cube Repair – Cube 80

This Roland Cube Repair was a cube 80 from the ever popular Roland Cube range. These amps have a reputation for indestructibility and I’m not surprised. Despite their popularity and the hundreds of amp repair enquiries I receive, I’ve only ever had 3 Roland repair enquiries! Two were from the Roland Cube range, of which […]

Orange AD30R Repair – Valve amp Service

This Orange AD30R Repair came in semi-urgently for a full service. The customer had a gig with his band at the Bodega in Nottingham on the thursday and he brought me the amp on Monday night.

Egnater Repair – Rebel30

This amp is a Rebel 30 by Egnater. At first, I had a bit of trouble with the Egnater repair but I’m pleased to say that I found a solution for the customer. The diagnosis itself didn’t prove a problem, the problem was simply the gain potentiometer itself. This is a dual ganged part (2 […]

1962 Vintage Ac30 Repair

Vintage AC30 repair – 1962 Vox repair

The guys over at Confetti in Nottingham brought me this vintage AC30 repair. It appears to be a 1962 JMI era Vox model but I’m an amp tech, not an amp historian, so I may be mistaken! It’s definitely an AC30/6 model, only made in smooth black vinyl in 1962. It’s very nice! The customer […]

Marshall JCM 2000 Repair – TSL 100

Marshall JCM2000 repair I get quite a lot of the JCM2000 series in for repair – both DSL and TSL. I think it’s because they were so popular, rather than any endemic issues. This particular JCM2000 is a TSL100, the triple super lead model. I’m writing the blog post quite a while after the repair […]

Marshall – 2205 Repair

This 2205 repair came to me following an unsuccessful operation by another tech. The 2205 were a new step for Marshall – and were one of a group of amplifiers that formed the ancestors of many channel switching amps we now take for granted – including amps by Mesa Boogie, Cornford, Hughes & Kettner, Marshall’s […]

Fender Repair – Blues Deville

Fender repair time! This is a lovely Blues Deville fender amp that’s seen some serious loving! The owner has been gigging it for 15 years. Unfortunately, first the Low gain input died, then the high gain became intermittent. The owner asked for a full valve amp service and I promised to repair the jacks as […]

Dr Z Repair – Mini Z This Dr Z Repair was a simple job. This DR Z amp is a 2 valve class A amp with one ECC83/12AX7 and one EL84. In this case, the output EL84 valve was faulty, the heater. The customer asked me to replace the amp with one the fancy ‘cryo’ […]
