RE GRILL IN AGED LOOK !
Cabinet Makeover SERVICE
OUR OWN PRODUCT
When sending combo amps like a Deluxe or Twin Reverb, just send us the chassis – no need to ship the whole thing!
BE SURE TO DISCHARGE YOUR FILTER CAPS BY UNPLUGGING YOUR AMP, AND LEAVING THE POWER SWITCH “ON” AND THE STANDBY SWITCH IN THE “PLAY” MODE. AFTER A FEW MINUTES THE CAPS SHOULD BE DRAINED.
Unplug the speaker and reverb cables. Make note of which reverb cable goes where! Usually (but not always), the RCA jack with the red mark goes to the “reverb input” plug. You will also need to unscrew the power cable retainer on the left side of the cabinet. Then simply unscrew the four bolts holding the chassis in place via the “chassis straps” on top of the cab – reach underneath and hold the keps nuts while you unscrew the bolts. After that, simply slide the chassis out.
Always remove your power tubes & rectifier tube, wrap them in bubble wrap & box them separately! You can then pack them in the box with the amp/chassis. Preamp tubes can stay in the sockets if the tube retainers are installed. If not, remove and wrap them as well. We find it useful to “roll” the chassis in a big piece of cardboard and tape it up tight. THEN pack it as if you would expect it to be dropped a few times along the way (double box is always a great idea)!
BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME & CONTACT INFO INSIDE THE PACKAGE WITH THE AMP!!!!
Please ship via FedEx or USPS (UPS is extremely rough) – double box if possible, require a signature for deliveryand insure your amp for its full value!
If a mistake was made on our end, we will do what it takes to make it right! If we sent the wrong item, we’ll exchange it no charge and cover the extra USPS shipping both ways.
If you want to return an item we made a mistake on, there is no charge whatsoever and we’ll give you a full refund.
If the mistake was made by the customer (ie the wrong item was ordered, customer changed mind), there is a 15% re-stocking fee, and shipping is NOT refunded.
Any returned item MUST be returned in new, unused condition.

Due to popular demand, we are now accepting vintage Fender amps SHIPPED TO US for repair, upgrade, blueprint or modification in shop! Just send us your vintage Fender – we set it up & send it back!
We do anything, from a simple repair job or tune-up to a full-on upgrade/blueprinting/overhaul! Turn your silverface Fender into one of the BEST sounding amps you’ve ever heard!!
A basic tune up includes cleaning all pots, jacks & switches, tightening all pots, jacks, switches & transforemrs, cleaning & re-tensioning tube sockets, testing all tubes, and giving the entire circuit an exam.
A typical silverface overhaul includes all of the above, plus all new electrolytic caps (power filters, bias cap & cathode bypass caps in the preamp), signal cap upgrade, new power drop resistors, plate resistors, bias resistor, blackface mod, and blueprinting the circuit (we DIAL it in for optimum tone & performance). After an overhaul, you won’t believe it’s the same amp you sent in! The tone, openness, response, note blossom, touch sensitivity, harmonic content & clean sustain will blow you away, as will the super creamy overdrive quality when pushed!
There are several UPGRADES & modifications that are easy to perform and can be of tremendous benefit to the discerning musician! These mods do not require any drilling and are easily reversible.

Note: * This is not a storefront. We operate as a mail-order business only.
* As of March 1, 2014 we have stopped accepting fax&phone orders
We prefer sending payment as on the mod form.as paypal and credit cards are a lot of paperwork and it is hard th match up separate online orders with so many income amps.
Also paypal or cards take out 3% in processing fees, and some people have a lot of problems paying online, requiring several emails back and forth ,which takes us more time than the actual mods sometimes.
But if you really need to pay online let me know and we can give you ordering information.
We are now offering complete rebuilds of re-issued amps. Don't like the sound of your Deluxe Reverb Re-issue? We can convert this to an original AB763 point to point custom amp for as little as $700. We can also rebuild your Blues Jr amp to a point to point build that incorporates many popular mods for only $400. CALL US!!!
Here is a Vibrolux Reveb Reissue Rebuild . New CTS pots and SOZO caps
are used. Replace the main circuit board with a PTP circuit board built like the originals using top quality components,add a Bias board like the original and replace the Filter cab board and filter caps with a PTP board using top quality components.
