    Hello
    I have a Traynor YCV80 combo amp. It's about the same dimensions as a Fender Twin.
    At 65 lbs, science can only speculate why Yorkville didn't put casters or tilt arms on it.
    The parts will be Ernie Ball pop-out casters and Fender tilt arms.
    I'd like to let a tech do it. Can anyone recommend a shop in the Philly area?
    TIA

    Likely because it would add another 10-lbs to the amp?

    [RU not entertained?]
    Seriously, I've removed casters and legs from my Twin and my Super Reverb to make it easier to heft the amps out of the trunk & walk into the clubs.

    Put the legs back on and use 'em - so you blow out your own ears and not those of the audience.

    I have sent Ray an email with the parts etc. info. I will post feedback and a pic if he does the job, after the holidays. North Wales is just 25 miles up the road from me.
    Thanks very much, Kurzman!

    He replied that he only does electronic repairs. Back to square one.

    Man, these are such easy jobs. maybe try a woodworker/cabinet builder and just make sure he looks at a pic (if not the real thing) to see how they're installed.
