Hey there! I just got back
from jamming with the guys and this amp is AMAZING. It's completely
different from the one I dropped off with you. The bass is "useable" and
the controls just seem to do so much more...or maybe it's just
Thanks so much. I'm still dialing in a tone but it's working like a charm. Thank
First let me say thank you for your professionalism, skill and talent. Upon
our first contact I wasn't sure what to expect as repairs sometimes can be
costly, time consuming and uncertain. I truly was expecting the worst as
the road is not kind to gear. However, in having you repair my SVT pro5 you
did so in a professional timely manner and I no longer need to look anywhere
for amp repair again. You were more than fair in pricing and you are a true
craftsman, I appreciate that! I wish we could to take you on tour full time
just in case something ever goes wrong again! Thank you and as much as I
do not look forward to another amplifier going down at least with out shred
of doubt I know where to go.
Thank you once again and my best regards,

I just wanted to say thanks again for the quality work!!! My fender deville sounds
totally awesome. I really appreciate the prompt diagnosis and repair. It was
very affordably priced too!!! What you do for people is really awesome. Also
I really do appreciate the suggestions and info you gave me towards shopping
for a new metal amp. Your info will definitely be passed along to many friends
in the futcher and my amps now have a new trustworthy Dr. to keep them tip-top

I just want to shoot you an e-mail letting you know that the Les
Paul sounds incredible! It feels great, the action is nice and
low, no buzzing or interference noticed, and I especially like
tuners! It's awesome to play guitar and not worry about going out
of tune halfway into a jam. Thanks for taking good care of her,
she's my baby.
Sorry for the delay. I've been meaning to write this e-mail ever
since I powered up the amps and tried them out the other week.
They sound awesome! The MusicMan
sounds incredible with the new power tubes. It's super warm, big, and loud.
Everything I could want in a bass amp. It sounds better than it did when
I first got it. I doubt it's sounded this good since the early 70s. The
Orange also works perfectly now. I like that sovtek tube in
the v3 spot. The distortion
is smooth and creamy and there's no cutting out anymore. It's been great
having these amps back in use for our recent gigs. We've been told that
we have a 'wall of sound' going on and it's undoubtedly in
part attributed to
your work and dedication to quality. I'm looking forward to recording our
album over these next couple weeks and really showcasing the beauty of
the amps. Thanks for everything man! I'll probably be in touch
with some more work.
Chris - just wanted to let you know that we practiced on Friday
and the amp sounded incredible. I'd spent most of the week tuning
my pedals into the new tone of the amp and it was very, very nice!
(I treated myself to a SKB floorboard and GeorgeL cable set, so my
pedals were a LOT cleaner). Thanks for all your hard work on the
The amp sounds great man! Thanks for all the work that you did on
it. It sounds as good as it did, if not better than, when I first
bought it. The clean is sparkling and actually clean sounding. The
nasty feedback is totally cleared up. Also, the volume is pretty
much twice as loud as it had been when i dropped it off. It finally
sounds like an Orange amplifier! Thanks again for all the work and
the awesome prices--it was definitely far more affordable than i
had expected. With you doing the work, i can actually afford to have
my gear serviced and also know that it's in good hands.
I found Ampmender through a Google search, and had no idea how fortunate
I was! Chris worked on my Fender Deluxe Reverb, replacing tubes,
and cleaning it up, as it hadn’t been touched in over a decade. I
could tell right away that I was in good hands. Chris is very knowledgeable
and technical savvy. He was also incredibly responsive and customer
service oriented. I was excited to pick up the amp and give it a
workout, and the experience exceeded my expectations. It is so sparkling,
clean and punchy…..wow, what an improvement! Chris – you know what
you’re doing, man. I was also impressed with Chris’ follow-up, not
to mention his very reasonable prices. All in all…..a simply great
experience with Ampmender. I’ll be back in the future!
I distinctly stand out now in the band with a presence
like I didn’t have before with this setup. Makes you really have
to be on your toes and avoid clams at all costs.
Your choice of tubes is perfect.
The range of tone is real wide and I can dial in quite a bit of
sounds. We did New Minglewood Blues
by the Dead and I ran the dirty channel with just a tad of breakup
fuzz and that sound cool. Later.
I just finished playing and what a difference!
It’s like a completely different amp especially on the lead channel.
I never had that much gain before on that channel and for the first
time, I turned the gain down (I must be getting old). The clean
and crunch channels sound great too. Thanks so much for the hard
work and I’ll definitely be coming back to you to switch out the
transformers in the Spring. Could you give me an estimate to upgrade
to the Mercury Magnetics? Will it make a substantial difference
in tone/noise/or longevity of the amp?
Thanks again and I’ll be certainly giving
you some word of mouth advertising to everyone I know with an amp
hey man, finally got to practice
with my amp today, and i have to say, it's so much better!
i don't have to worry about my volume cutting out mid song anymore.
all the pots are incredibly smooth and works like it was just broken in.
thanks so much.
I played my amp on Saturday and it sounded awesome!
One last question regarding playing out of the two speakers versus
two.: Was the setup as follows if my memory serves me correctly:
1. 16 Ohm jack on head as opposed to the 4 and 8’s.
2. Mono switch instead of stereo to achieve the two speaker sound
3. 16 OHM jack in cabinet.
Been out of town. The Peavey sounds great!! It's like new again. Not
a buzz in the whole rack The clean out really seems to have helped
out the general power as well, the thing rocks! Great job. What's
the status on the Acoustic head? Hope all is well.
I had purchased a Fender
Princeton Reverb '65 Reissue brand new. The was noisy, unbalanced
and not a sound one would expect from a supposedly classic amp.
Ampmender did an amazing job
in improving the amp. The tone is now so sweet, strong and balanced.
This amp is just smoking good now - boutique amp level good! Thanks
The amp sounds great! It actually
sounds better than my Fender Deluxe in some ways.
How much do you charge for
set-ups? My Telecaster could use one for sure.
The Acoustic with the new speaker sounds fantastic. Ethan loves
and I like the big range. Thanks for the good advice.
The amp works and sounds great. Thanks a lot.
I've attached the manual for that keyboard I told you I'm having problems with.
It looks like there are schematics at the end
I just sat down to play it
last night and it sounds fantastic. I am in love with the tone
emulating through my speakers. Thanks for giving it life again.
When can I bring the Marshall down next week?
Thanks for bringing my Marshall DSL100 back from the DEAD!
It sounds absolutely MINT! I've played it
for about 3 hours so far and it hasn't lost power yet and the tone
is incredible. You're the best. I'll definitely refer anyone in
need of amp repair to you.
"I needed my
vintage Fender amp diagnosed/repaired and didn't want to bring
it to just anyone, and I'd seen Ampmender before on Craigslist
and decided to give it try. I was pleasantly surprised to find
that Chris was very knowledgable and quite thorough. Right off
the bat knew I wasn't being sold a line of BS when I dropped off
my Quad Reverb. With all amp repairs, no matter where you go, you're
going to pay a bench fee - Ampemender's was cheaper than the standard
$50, and it's money well spent, as he told me exactly what it needed.
I went ahead with the repairs and WOW! Not only am I confident
my amp won't crap out on me again, it sounds amazing, like I had
never heard it sound before and the price was considerably lower
than I thought it would be!! He also recomended future repairs
and upgrades. Like an honest auto mechanic, Ampmender is truly
a diamond in the rough, I won't trust my baby with anyone else!
I highly recommend Ampmender to anyone who needs amp work, especially
those who own vintage/classic/boutique amps. I really liked the
fact that he was straight with me and told me what it needed and
not what I could get ripped off on. Chris is great and let me pick
his brain for some vintage amp advice, which was just as good as
the service! CONTACT AMPMENDER NOW AND UNLOCK YOUR AMP'S TRUE POTENTIAL!!!"
Thanks for tuning up my Bogner
xtc……Sounds incredible !
Very rich & full……clean
channel is insane!
Great job! Lou
Mesa sounds fantastic, man. Thanks again.

Hey Chris- just wanted to thank you for the work
you did on my Mesa. It sounds absolutely perfect with my effects
now. Bang up job, as always.

Chris -Thank you for making the amp break up just loud enough
to wake my daughter and sweet enough to put my son to sleep. Well
Fender custom vibrolux reverb service
JUST WANTED TO DROP YOU A LINE TO SAY THANKS THE AMP
SOUNDS GREAT LIKE
Just a quick note to say thanks again! I've been jamming in the garage
since the minute I got home. The Marshall sounds absolutely amazing!
Far beyond what I had even hoped! I'm thinking of ditching my clean
boost and eq pedals altogether, it doesn't need them anymore! Wow!
Thanks again for a great job.
a happy customer! E
