Local Guitar Amplifier Repair & Service.

Sickamps see many more guitar amplifier repairs than any other form of electronics stage equipment. Naturally, as our name suggests it has become a specialism for us.

They are not necessarily more problematic or fail more but they are more popular and are generally multi-functional and often used as bass amps, piano amps and so on.

The most common form of Guitar amplifier repair:

-Broken Pots

-Crackling pots

-Damaged jacks

-Hums & Crackles (caused by dry joints, leaking capacitors)
-Blown Elements
-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

Main technologies we repair in guitar amplifiers - solid state, and valve.

Solid State

The term solid state means no moving parts and all ‘solid’  refers to is the Silicone Transistors and MOSFETS used to amplify and deliver the current to the speaker.

Valve

Valve amps use electrons travelling through a vacuum to amplify the current.  The blue glow tinge you see on power tubes is plasma and is as close as you can come to seeing electrons moving.

Amps are dangerous inside!!!!

Both amplifiers technologies 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!

We’re trusted by manufacturers such as Mesa / Boogie for warranty repairs

We’re authorised by some of the biggest brands in musical electronics and amplifiers. Please see our extensive list at [link to Brands]
