With electronic repairs, 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.
