Bass Amplifier Repairs

Bass amplifiers tend to be higher rated than guitar amps and are often heavier due to bigger components used, there are obviously departures to this such as some of the new PJB and MarkBass amps.  We service and repair both valve and solid state amps.  Bass amplifier repairs are generally more involved than guitar amps due to their amplifier designs, bigger heatsinks or many more valves in the output stage such as the Ampeg SVT with it's sextant of glass.  That being said bass amps are generally much higher rated than their design specification meaning we don't often see as many.  Typically when a bass amp goes wrong, it does it in quite a big way.  Common faults such as jack replacements, hums and crackles are a straight forward repair though.
