if you check over my previous post, you'll see that I never actually recommended anywhere-I was trying to find places.

Someone else recommended Danny's Amps. I was just following that up. I'll edit that post to make it clearer...

Sir Ruff,

If you drive, you could go see David White in Cambridge/Boston. He repairs all my stuff, he can take some time occasionally because he gets so many repairs. But he's informative, fun, and gets the job done.

I have another suggestion for repairs in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area:

Slemmons Music Services:
http://www.slemmons.com/Amp%20Repairs.html

The replaced broken keys on a Juno-60, a power supply for a JX-8P, and a battery in a Polysix and were not only quick with the service, but relatively inexpensive.

I've used Audio Electronics to get an EPS repaired and not only was it a lengthy process, they charged me a lot more than their initial estimate. One of the guys even agreed to buy it from me and after agreeing on a price, tried to re-negotiate for about 1/2 of his original offer and acted like the previous agreement was no big deal. I don't live in Dallas anymore, but I would never use them again after that experience.

Sydney, Australia.

I am a service tech in Sydney, I have been repairing and restoring synths here since the early eighties. I was a warranty service tech here for Sequential, PPG, Kurzweil and E-mu. I service all vintage synths, and can supply parts such as ARP and Oberheim keys, CEM chips etc. I can provide pick-up and drop off on the Eastern suburbs and inner west if needed.

I am finally getting around to putting up a web page this week, but in the meantime I can be contacted at:

synthesizers AT mac.com

For information, address, references etc.

OK - no one has mentioned him yet, so Jim at Singing Cat Services in Scotland.
He's just outside Glasgow and knows his stuff.

He has fixed and will be servicing shortly for me a JX3p, EX 8000, JX10, Juno106 and is building a PAIA midi/cv convertor for me as we speak.
Last time I was at his house there where Moogs/Obies/Rolands and an Oscar lying about. 8)

His prices are good and the work is excellent.
So from electronics kits to anything analogue -- hes yer man north of the border.
(He also does digital synths and fixes AppleMacs too I should say.
and a really nice friendly guy to boot!! :) )

You beat me to it matey!

Jimbo, is a great tech & a well sound guy to boot!
He's serviced most of my gear & he know's his stuff.
He's a good chum of Kent's (RL Music)
Fair, honest and his price reflects his professionalism!

If you've got a problem with your old ARP 2500 / 2600, Minimoog, Roly JP-8, G4 Powerbook or you want something built from scratch...he's your man :wink:

www.singingcatservices.co.uk

He is in the middle of designing an analogue modular, that would blow your windows out man!

I recommend him 100%

Regards...

Just got my jupiter-8 back from Kurt at http://www.kurtsamps.com/. He installed an encore midi kit and did a full service/calibration to bring the instrument back to 100%. The guy is busy, so it took a while, but I'm very pleased.
