We do like Dr Z amps, they’re a twist of modern simplistic design crossed with traditional hand wiring using quality components. Because of the care and attention they rarely go wrong. Having a regular service and valve check can keep harm from happening minimise potential of serious damage.
Country to what some repairers claim, there is actually no sole UK repair agent for DR Z, outside the US Don and the guys at DR Z will happily support any repair company and are very helpful!
-Hums & Crackles (caused by dry joints, leaking capacitors)
-Played too loud and let out some smoke
-Rarely it’s human error – We try to understand how you use the kit and offer suggestions for best results
Amplifiers contain dangerous voltages and users are not recommended to start prodding around inside. We have had many amps in over the years where a video clip on ‘repairing amps’ is used and often creates many more faults. For many people their guitar amp is their tool to earning money, and needs to be carefully repaired and looked after. If you are unsure, do not touch it and call us!
