I design, build, repair, and restore analogue electronic audio equipment especially amplifiers. I have over thirty years experience of analogue electronics and am qualified with a Bsc (Hons) in electronics & communications specialising in electroacoustics.
My objectives in fault diagnosis, repair & restoration are performance and long-term reliability. I am a specialist in the restoration of vintage guitar and hifi amplifiers including the complete rebuilding of amps, and modification. Valve and solid state. I also repair and restore studio equipment.
Guitar & bass amps are designed and hand built in the workshop - single ended & push pull.Also send return effects drivers and power supplies for pedal boards.
Spring reverb, equalizer, distortion units and pre amps for studio, live or home use. Also, custom design of hifi & pre amps, phono, line and output stages.
I design & build valve, hybrid, solid-state pre amps for 50s and 60s type power amps such as Quad II's and Leaks.
Custom racked vintage studio modules, such as classic telefunken, Neumann, Siemens, Neve, WSW. Fully repaired/serviced, calibrated and recapped, with a choice of modern or vintage power supplies. Mic pre amps, EQ's, Compressors, Limiters.
I run an electronic and engineering workshop, not a music or components shop which means all charges go to labour and parts. I do not make money on selling parts. All work undertaken is carried out by me. Equipment is usually looked at on the same or next day. Amplifiers can be tested at full power in the workshop, especially after the repair.
My workshop address is Unit 1A First Floor The Chocolate Factory 2, 4 Coburg Road Wood Green N22 6UJ. Contact me directly on 0208-829-8927 between 9am - 7pm mon to sat to discuss your amp, mod or design requirement. You can also EMAIL.
"I play guitar in a gigging band so keeping my amps in top condition is a priority. Theo has worked on my vintage amps Marshall JTM50, Marshall JTM30, '65 Fender Pro-Reverb and '64 Fender Princeton. They all were very good to begin with but Theo spent some time with each in his workshop and a few days handed over some truly impressive guitar amps. They all seem to have acquired some kind of magic. They are the same amps in character but now have some warmth and sparkle that makes playing a delight" "Theo has also built me a custom 12 watt classic with reverb - all valve which is like nothing i have ever played. It is the most responsive amp I have ever gigged with and I'm pleased as punch" Dan Turner
Theo built me a valve distortion unit which I am extremely happy with. The audio and build quality of the unit is exceptional. He has included parameters and functions that are not found on 'off the peg' units. Bibio (warp records).
