    Jim,

    Bring your amp to Pete Cage. I am dropping off my 1965 Super Reverb at Pete's for a repair this Saturday. If he can fit you into his schedule you're welcome to drive to Damascus, MD with me when I drop off the amp.

    Here's a +1 for Eric over at Viking Amps. He did a wonderful job on my Vibro Champ.

    + 3 for Eric at Viking!!!!

    Did a great job on my Hot Cat 100R and fixed my 1952 Ampex 403-P mic pre-amp.

    Super nice guy too.

    Viking???? I've lived in Warrenton for 15 years and never knew we had an amp builder/repair shop. Theres not much in Warrenton and I would have never guessed. Man...I gotta get out more often.

    Home is where the guitar is!
    Pete Cage is the man!!! He has worked on almost all of my amps (and I bought one of his). Pete is very meticulous and knows tone.

    +1 for Pete Cage! He did a retube, general maintenance, and gain channel mod on my Classic 50 and it sounds great now!
