Amplifiers

Peter has been repairing guitar amplifiers since 1975. The amps used back then were usually Fender Tremolux, Super Reverb or maybe an Aussie V.A.S.E or Moody, thirty years later these amps are still around and Peter is still fixing and restoring them. Peter has kept abreast of the changing technology and can also repair amplifiers and effects pedals that use digital circuitry.

Restoration work is becoming more frequent over the past few years, clients who have trusted their precious Vintage Amplifiers to PN Electronics have never been disappointed. Amps that have been restored include: 50's Vox, early Ampeg, Fender, Epiphone, Kalamazoo, Musicman, Tiesco and Marshall and Australian made amps like Bassking, Goldentone, Moody and Eminar.

When you bring in your Amplifier it will be repaired with care using the best parts and valves available, a thorough inspection of the circuit board and wiring, all repairs include cleaning of controls, inputs and switches, speaker and valve testing, all screws and mounting nuts will be tightened as necessary. After the repair is completed your amp will be alignment equipment tested and then sound tested with a guitar.
