    Howdy,
    Just starting to play again after a few years away so I want to get all my old gear running again. I have a super champ in particular that crackles and pops (I replaced the tubes) and I want to take it to someone who can give her some TLC.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Try Myles Rose' website www.guitaramplifierblueprinting.com give him an email, and he could probably steer you in the right direction. Great guy, tons of killer info on his site.

    Jerry Blaha at ampcrazy.com. He's a good friend of mine and does great work.

    Jim Foote, MusicWorks 310-379-5194

    He's done all my amp work for years. Really knows his sh*t... if Larry Carlton and Robben Ford use him, why shouldn't you? He's got a list of clients (and their gold records on his wall) that will convince you if this post doesn't.

    I use Don "Toneman' Butler when I get in over my head or don't have the time to do my own work. His shop rates are good because he works out of his home. His website: Toneman

    In addition, Jim Foote is the #1 authorized guy to service Dumble amps.

    I met adam at the socal tonefest. I liked the amps and guitars he makes; unique style of playing too. Didn't know he did repairs. Cool.

    Look at all the high powered amp guys out there.
    We have one guy to my knowledge that does work on that level...
    He's out in little Wakarusa IN...but he does build a HECK of an amp!
