I have the chips available at www.synthparts.com for $55 if you can do it yourself. I don't see how swapping out one chip is worth $70.

If you're looking for replacement wood casings for your vintage synths or custom-fit wood ends for synths like Juno 6, 60, Jup 6 etc. > Jeff Toman at Custom Synth has just done a great job on making new solid mahogony wood ends for my Juno 60. See pic below:

Fast turnaround, easy to fit and great value. I believe Jeff can also carry out other technical repairs.

His address is: Jeff Toman, Custom Synth, 28 Buller Road, Newton Abbot, TQ12 1AB. Tel. 07787317844 or 01626361829

If you happen to be Canadian and live anywhere near Calgary, I work at a keyboard museum that has a full time keyboard and synth technitian/repair guy. The websites www.cantos.ca There's also a virtual tour worth checking out, as there's lots of little gems in the collection.

We (my band) have used Phase Engineering Sydney to repair everything from MPC's to Juno's to Octave Cats. Always do a good job. They are next door to the Roland headquarters and have been their service technicians since the 80's. (and hence have rooms full of spare roland parts) ( I know this because i am friends with the owner's son and we go for little adventures into the back storage rooms frequently).

Also, how does this usually work; do you send them/take them the synth and have them determine if they can fix it? Or do you just pay regardless of whether it gets fixed or not?
Depending on the size of the shop, you may or may not pay a little bit up front so that you're "less likely to abandon it." The place I go to makes you put $45 down up front and he deducts it from the cost of the repair.

My guy:

DANNY'S AMP SERVICE
856-662-2979
5817 ROOSEVELT AVE.
PENNSAUKEN, NJ 08109

Made my JX-10 look beautiful and fixed some bushings. I'm taking my Juno 60 over to him tomorrow to do the same for that so I can sell it in good conscience.

Care to steal me a Jupiter 6 or 8? I'll pay you handsomely for shipping. :)

Urban Music, Japan

Name: Kaz
Rate: 10000 yen per hour

I live in Taiwan, very small country so no one knows how to repair my Jupiter 8. I shipped my JP8 there and after 1 week it was back with problem solved. Great service. The shipping is quite expensive but worth it. If you live in Japan I recommend UM. Even if you live in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore you might consider shipping your synth there to get repaired. My Jupiter had 2 dead voices, 1 broken key, tuning problem and it costs me about $500 to repair, tuning and plus shipping forth and back.

Hello!
I can repair practically any gear.
The geographic and maybe postal distance is the main problem, i'm lving in Russia. For foreign orders i can act as a "last resort". I mean the case if you definitely wouldn't get any good service for particular gear close to you.
In this case i can do the job OR buy the unit.
I can trace any malfunction up to component in any gear 100%. Only 3 gears (among hundreds) with negative result due to completely nonrepairable status (absence of components in the world open market).
10 years professional DSP experience, 25 years in analog/digital electronic, tech, musician, sounddesigner and creator of math synthmodels.

I was looking for a place near me in Cucamonga. Analoguehaven seems perfect!

And I can also recommend Adam's quality work. (Rockersrevenge)

I sold him two partly broken 106's and he does really great salvage work on them.

I was lost. He wasn't.

Besides Midwest music menders (that was mention earlier) heard mix reviews from them
any other good and reputable place in the Chicagoland area, the key is good customer service
and please don't mention deltronics I had a bad experience there
thanks
