With electronic repairs the 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.
Instrument repairs that are not collected
On occasion instruments that have been repaired but are not collected.
If we have had an instrument for 3 months or more that have not been collected, we may sell the instrument. This is to recover our costs or arrange for the disposal of the instrument.
Under these circumstances we will offer no financial compensation.
