WHAT WE DO

We repair and recalibrate vintage and modern studio equipment and can help you clear up any issues with the sound of your gear.

SSL Console Repair & Refurbishment

 

Channel by channel repair and refurbishment restores all channel functions and can be done on the bench with our SSL Repair and Recalibration jig. To ensure accurate and musical console function one generally brings the master section up to spec at the same time. This requires exclusive access to the console for actual diagnosis and repair and recalibration.

SSL Routing Card

 

When routing switches start to fail the best practice is to replace them all at once. We begin by replacing the circuit boards with new cards.  Next, all the connector pins are transferred from the old card to the new card. Then new switches, LEDs and resistors are soldered in place.

Dynaudio BM-6A Recap

 

This pair happened to have gone in different directions, one with too much bass and the other missing bottom end. These are self-powered speakers so when the drivers passed audio, the components were found to be at fault. Replacing their power supply caps and audio capacitors brought them back up to spec.

Neve 31102 Recap

 

When the channel strip sounds darker or too light, it is usually the capacitors and we do this every day.

SSL 4000 - I/O Strip Noise Issue

Pursuing an intermittent noise issue

 

Using a test jig we can analyze the channel signal on the bench, diagnose and repair the issue without interrupting normal console use.

Millennia HV-3C - Listening Test

 

Photo 2 - After repairing the Millennia pre-amp on the bench the unit was brought into Studio A to compare to both our Millennia preamps and our reference GML pre-amp.One of the advantages of having a shop in a major recording studio is the ability to audition gear in a professional environment.
