TUBE AMPLIFIER REPAIR
I have been repairing old and new tube amplifiers for the past 30 years. I have repaired many makes and models, including:
Dynaco's Dynakit ST-70
Fisher 400C, X100-B, 510-ST, 30-A
Harmon Kardon (HK) A500
Heathkit EA-3, W4AM, Stereo Amp
Knight KN-330 (Tuner/amp)
RCA MI-12224 (Early PA amplifier)
REPAIR VS RESTORATION
I repair equipment and do not perform restoration.
Restoration involves placing new parts within the shells of the old parts, or placing new parts inside of moulds of old parts that are painted to look like the old parts.
Repair involves installing new parts under the chassis. All exposed parts on top of the chassis stay in place (are not removed).
Defective components shall be replaced.
All filter and paper capacitors shall be replaced.
All tubes will be tested for Emissions and Leakage (shorts). Bad tubes shall be replaced.
If you would like to learn how to repair Tube Equipment, please contact me. I do not charge for my time, only for parts used.
