Bench Rate: $120/hr.

Our current instrument service lead time is approximately five weeks, and more intensive jobs including fretwork and neck resets can necessitate a timeline in excess of that estimate. Some small fixes (output jack issues, restringing, etc.) can be completed in a shorter time frame and we try to help out folks who have emergency situations right before shows and tours. 

All services reflect labor costs only. Parts (including strings) are additional.  We currently stock D’addario, Ernie Ball, Thomastik-Infield, and La Bella.

All services listed reflect labor costs only, and parts are additional. Most amplifier repairs are fairly unique to the individual amp, and we have cataloged a few of the more common maintenance issues below. We welcome the opportunity to sit down with you and evaluate your gear when you bring it in, so we both can have a clear expectation of the work needed. It can often take 1/2-1hr of labor to diagnose more enigmatic issues, so a minimum 1hr labor is a good rule of thumb.

Yes, we repair pedals! This can sometimes walk the line of cost effectiveness, but often the problem is a simple one, and we can get them up and running in short order. Some collectible, vintage pedals deserve more time and money, and as with amplifier restoration, we can service vintage pedals with the right parts to preserve/restore their sonic glory.
