VINTAGE ELECTRONICS - REPAIR & RESTORATION

 

Here at the Retro Workshop we believe in repair and restoration of old electronic equipment to make it suitable for use once again in the modern world. 

 

We specialize in the repair and restoration of vintage valve (tube) equipment such as Radios, Valve Amplifiers, Guitar Amplifiers and the like, but we also repair and restore non valve equipment manufactured prior to 1970. 

 

This type of older electronics equipment was never designed with obsolescence in mind, instead it was built with the ability to repair it should it go faulty.  Most of what we repair and restore is typically 50-70 years old - I wonder if your iPhone or flat screen Television will be around and working in 60 years' time!

 

Get in touch if you need a repair or restoration, or a friendly chat about what to do with that old radio you found in the loft, or the old valve guitar amp that has sat gathering dust for years, we are here to help!

 

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

REPAIRS & VALVE TESTING

 

We have access to a wide range of original service manuals, test equipment and spares, including new old stock valves and components to allow us to repair your equipment and maintain its originality.  We make sure equipment is safe to use during repair and will advise on items that need to be replaced on safety grounds.  We also test valves, if you require this service please call us to discuss.

 

RESTORATION & DESIGN

 

We are passionate about the restoration of old equipment but not just the electronics. We work with a cabinet maker for instances where the the case or cabinet needs restoring to its former glory.

 

We can design bespoke valve amplifiers and valve guitar amplifiers - get in contact to discuss your requirements.
