Fender Amplifier Repair Center Harlow Essex & Hertfordshire

We love Fenders amplifiers and see many Hot Rod Deluxe, and Blues Junior in for repair, not because they are a troublesome amplifier but they are a good all rounder, being light and punchy with a volume control you can never realistically get above 3 we have a good working relationship with Fender service department and obtain spares regularly.

We’re often seeing lots of Fender amps to repair, not because they’re troublesome but because they are popular.  Popular models we see include the hot rod deluxe, blues and daville. Common faults with these amps is excessive humming caused by bad capacitors, crackling and popping caused by heat affected components.

If you have a Fender amplifier needing repair please use the repair ticket and our workshop will assist your repair

Amps are dangerous inside!!!!

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!
