Video Calibrations

Your TV is the final link in the video chain, so proper calibration is crucial to ensuring that the image you see from a DVD or broadcast program matches the producers' intentions. A professional display calibration will provide many benefits to your home theatre system.
  • Accurate colour reproduction and shadow detail
  • A focused, full resolution image
  • Minimize artifacts and distortions
  • Reduce eye fatigue/strain
  • Properly match your home theatre system and viewing environment to achieve maximum performance from all of your video components

I spend ~4 hours calibrating a display. During this time I like the customer to be present so that I can lead them through the entire calibration process to demonstrate how and why each setting is determined. After the display is calibrated, we spend some time going through a variety of demo material to verify that the display is operating at peak performance.

All services provided are guaranteed and work is not complete until the customer is completely satisfied.

Tube Amp Service

I specialize in repairing vintage tube amps by Fender, Marshall, Ampeg, Vox, Hiwatt, and others. I can make your gear sound its best.
I handle all aspects of guitar amps and bass amps from the electronics (e.g., power supply overhauls and re-capping) to the tubes (e.g., re-tubing, biasing).
I am a musician and vintage gear enthusiast. I don't just use test equipment to repair your gear - I use my ears too, ensuring that your gear passes a thorough "play and listen" test before the repair is complete.

Tube replacement

Choosing the right tubes for your amp can help you achieve the tone you want. Choose from various tube brands including Sovtek, Electro Harmonix, Svetlana, Ruby, and JJ .

Removal of mods (modifications)

Mods often do little to improve an amp's performance, while usually compromising its reliability and resale value. There is a dazzling array of effects pedals available today making many mods of the past unnecessary. Also, poorly-executed mods turn amps into serious electrocution hazards!

Removing mods to restore your amp to its original state will help your amp maintain its value. Amps, just like guitars, are much more collectable when they're in stock condition.

Fender Blues Junior Mods (an exception to modifications)

These mods have become known as the "Billm" mods from his name on the Fender Discussion Pages. Fender's Blues Junior is a great little amp--it's small, light, priced right, and all tube. It has spring reverb, flexible tone controls, and it's loud for its size.  It has a couple of shortcomings, however, that can be overcome without too much difficulty.
