View Full Version : Amp build/mod'ers in Chicago
01-10-2012, 01:46 PM
Anyone know someone around Chicago who can do mods on amps?
Looking to install a master volume on an amp head. Shipping is too much to send it anywhere else so I'm looking for someone local.
Tim Schroeder, amp builder/luthier extraordinaire.
He's got a little shop that's kind of attached to MakenMusic down on
Hubbard St. south of Grand Ave (1 blk east of Armour).

Tim will blow you away with his knowledge and talent.

Ian at Specimen. Chicago's own mad scientist... he recently designed and built an amplifier system powering 76 of his proprietary horn speakers for a museum installation titled the "Sonic Arboretum" at the MCA. He also happens to be one of the world's most creative and innovative luthiers. http://www.specimenproducts.com/
