    Hello


    Hi guys

    First I would like to send my condolences to Gerd's familly and friends....I only met him a few times ..... was a great guy and an excellent tech. RIP Gerd.
    Another friend , Jean Claude AKA Mr.Tubeand is also fighting the same damn type of cancer as Gerd......doctors are giving only a few months. I have been helping him out for the last few months since he is unable to lift or concentrate on anything :-(

    Tubetwang::: please give me a call ,,,,I will take care of your amp no matter what it takes at no additional charge, will even pick it up and deliver it to you, no charge. Your amp (kit) can be challenging to work on since assembly errors by the builder are some times difficult to diagnose.......call me and I WILL make your amp sound like it should with no additional costs. As you can probably understand Jean Claude was not in the best of shape(mentally and physically) when you brought your 65 BF "kit" to him...maybe out of respect a mod here can change the title of his post title from "duds and turkeys" to something else.

    Amptek in Laval (Ste-Rose).

    He's cheap and VERY reliable. No one touches my amps except this guy. He knows his shit, I think he spends more time with tubes than with humans. And he will give you detailed explanations about the work that has to be done, he won't change tubes if they are still good, a very honest guy.

    Shop rates should be $60 per hour.

    Your mileage may vary

    Thanks to Pattste for the tip on Rick Onslow!:bow:

    I brought the Princeton Reverb and a Fender Reverb 6G15 to Rick.

    He fixed both units in a short time...

    He went as far as explaining what was wrong...

    The man is a Pro...

    Highly recommended!!!:banana::smilie_flagge17:

    You have been warned!

    Matt,

    I'm glad everything worked out. You had me worried there for a second.

    I'm retired but I do some repairs still, and ocasionally buy old non-working or poorly working amps to amuse myself. You can email me [email protected] if you need help.
    I"m located in Greenfield Park on the south shore of Montreal. I only do amps and guitar wiring and setups, no digital equipment.
