Good Bass Amp Repairer in Aucks?

Post by Mr Bass Man » Sun Sep 02, 2012 7:57 pm

Does anyone know a good bass amp repairer in Auckland? - preferably on or close to the North Shore

As mentioned on here before I have a Warwick Profet 5.1 head and the DI has been playing up - I've been getting excessive buzzing through the PA when I DI the amp and this has been getting steadly worse over the last month.

I've borrowed an old DI box from the drummer and that works, but the amps gain / volume pots are scratchy and the amp just doesn't seem to have the same 'grunt' or 'power' that it did, so I'd like to get it looked at and fixed.

The Rockshop sell the Warwick amps so I could take it there, but it may take 2-3 weeks to fix and my band is gigging every weekend until New Years, so I can't afford to be without an amp (I don't think the rockshop have 'loaner' amps?)

anyway if anyone does know a good place I can take it to get fixed it would be much appreciated!

thanks
